Happy Birthday to you!!!

She is the mother
of two crazy daughters
Crazy she is
as her daughters are

She is their best friend
in smiles and sorrows

She makes messy kitchen
and messy cupboards
but never minds
when they clean after her

Lazy in bones
easy in genes

She is a careless cook
whose dishes are delicious

She is a charitable bowl
who would give away
your unused box of bangles
or that expensive pair of jeans

She would count
missed phone calls
to missed periods

Friends she has
are plenty
in every city

Heart she has
that gold can't match

In service she is
a sister to Mother Theresa

She is a pillar of strength
an arm to rest
She was a dad, a mom;
a Sister, a friend

Tons of pride
though she has
Every tantrum we throw
She takes in her stride

She could be Tom
She could be Jerry
She could be a tooth fairy

She fought a family
a village, a system
so I could write
these few lines

She is fun,
and at times
She can make you stun!!!


Happy  50th Birthday to my rainbow, my sunshine, my thorn in the flesh, my strength, my weakness, my everything!!
