A Poem For Your Birthday


My big sister Amy is cheerful and bright
She majored in English but can't say words right

As a kid she fell out of a truck on the road
Her head was not damaged (at least not that showed)

College was mostly fun road trips and cheers
then she married her sweetheart from high school years

Three boys and a girl make the rest of the fam
Plus one confused cat trying to prove he's a man.

Amy is talented up the wazoo
There just isn't anything Amy can't do

She papercrafts, digiscraps, cuts her kids' hair
and as for Adobe no one can compare

She loves Christmas music, The Office and beets
Her handicapped dolphin impression is sweet

A better big sister I just couldn't find
The memories we've shared, I'd love to rewind

May your birthday be joyful and full of sweet bliss
May your PC work long enough to let you read this

Oh my heck...I don't know if I should be more impressed at your skillful memory, your humor, or your poetry! I can't believe how true this all was. You had me laughing through this entire thing. What a great gift to start out my birthday.

And thank you for showing the world our "Twilight" photo where you look so good and I get to show the world why I am doing Weight Watchers. :)

Love Ya.

Hope you had a great day yesterday, Amy! Happy Birthday!

Alicia, I'm just sayin' if that novel has you stumped, maybe you should consider being a children's author for the time being. You could make some big bucks with your poetry skills and write a hilarious children's book! Think about it!! Talented, that's what you are.
