To My Daughter On Her Birthday
Today is my daughters birthday.
I can still remember when she was born.
I remember how tiny and floppy she was and how I was so afraid I would break her neck.
I remember reaching into the cradle beside my bed, like one million times a night, to be sure she was still breathing.
I remember how much fun she was to dress up.
I remember she grew up way too fast.
Happy Birthday to my Ballerina ...
