It makes me smile to think of Mary
Surrounded by family on her special day
Seeing around her the legacy that she will leave
Cherishing each moment they share along the way.
So much change you have seen in your life
You’ve raised your children to make you smile
Not without the pressures that led you here
But thankful for each step along each mile.
I could envy you surrounded by your girls
For I know they are as special as you
To hear them laugh and enjoy the day
Not to mention such a lovely view.
I raise my glass and offer you a toast
May life treat you kindly as on this journey you stay
Feel the sun on your face to warm your heart
Congratulations Mary on your 80th birthday.
