You arrived on the scene – At the most opportune time
It’s been a blast ever since – Watching you blossom into your prime
You’ve made me so proud – But you also make me cry
Because I laugh so hard – And you don’t even try!!
Your dad and I have often said – We truly don’t have a clue
How we could be so lucky – To have a wonderful child like you
You’re very thoughtful and insightful – Especially for someone your age
You have a good head on your shoulders – To the point of being a sage!!
Scuba diving is a passion of yours – Since you were twelve years old
Now you’ve taken up cave diving – Because you’re adventurous and bold
You love music and dancing – And your dog Haley, of course
In short, you’re kind of crazy – For that, we have no remorse!!
When it comes to organization – You take a back seat to no one
Your closet looks like a department store – By the time you are done
Color, season, short or long sleeve – The organization goes on and on
We just watch in fascination – This wild and crazy phenomenon!!
So on this your “18th” birthday – It was important for us to say
How very much you mean to us – And how you brighten each day
So Michelle, we wish you a happy birthday – May all your dreams come true
And no matter where you may be – Your mom & dad truly love you!!
