Forgive and Forget - It's Your Birthday !


Hello, my little sister,

these words are just for you,

because you are just so wonderful,

and I'm so proud of what you do.


And days, weeks, months happen,

the years, they go so fast,

and words that could get said,

don't, and if they do they never last.


So I'm going to change all that,

and change it right here and right now.

I hope the correct words come along,

but I'll give it one good try, anyhow.


I have so many wonderful memories,

of us growing up happily together,

the days would last an eternity,

and summers would last forever.  


I thought I was a pretty good actress,

at least, that's the way you made me feel,

I would pretend to be "Shelli The Walking Doll"

Tell me now "Did you think that I was for real?" 


But there is a shadow on our past;

my favourite Toni doll's beautiful blond hair :(

How could you be so callous ?

How could you ? You didn't even care.


And I've never, ever forgiven you,

it was such a mean and horrible feat,

but today I grant you "forgiveness",

let's call it your birthday treat !


Because you always give me confidence,

that the future is brighter than today,

you know just when to sit and listen,

and then you know just what to say.


And we've had so many happy times,

and I'm grateful for our past,

and I'm looking forward to our futures,

and how long they will last.


Because you are such a special person,

your charity work is an example to us all,

and when I stand next to you,

I feel as if I'm ten foot tall.


Your gift for entertaining is legendary,

it's what legends are all about,

you bring the whole family together,

Martha Stewart had better watch out!


You're such a special sister,

I feel that I've been truly blessed,

I love you so very, very much,

because as a person you're one of the best.


So know that I've finally forgiven you,

(and that's a pretty good place to start),

and please accept my birthday gift of love,

some forgiving words from the heart !

This was the second draft. Shelli replied to the first one:

"You do some really wonderful work. I am very pleased but I would like to put
a little more emphasis on what a special sister/person she is. How about a
paragraph saying something about her bringing the family together with her
special talents for entertaining-please include a line about Martha Stewart
having to watch out.
I also would also like a paragraph expressing how lucky I am to have her for
a sister and how much I love her. Please make this of utmost importance.
Also can we change the title to something that includes the fact that it is
her birthday-such as Forgiveness on your birthday-my special sister.  
Thank-you, Shelli
PS I would lie the single rose and. No autograph please. Laos, I don't mind
if you publish it on the web site."
