Happy Birthday Sweetie!!

For my daughter who turns 19 today!

You Still Need Me
Even though you’re grown
You’re still right by my side
Struggling to be independent
A terrifying bumpy ride

I remember that little girl
With ribbons and pony tails
Who clung onto her mother
Memorizing every single detail

You may look grown on the outside
But on the inside I still can see
That precious innocent child
Who’s still fighting to be free

Coming to me frequently
In need of guidance and advice
Not quite financially stable
Your timing always precise

You still need me, don’t you?
Although you think you’re grown
My daughter I’ll always help you
Never will you be alone
