Katie's 40th Birthday

On March 15 in 73

When I was twenty-nine

A girl with lusty lungs was born

A little daughter mine

Through the years I’ve watched you grow

From child to womanhood

You’ve made me proud in many ways

I always knew you would

You made your mark at H&M

Then Marc made you his wife

From Brislington to Bradford

You’ve forged a married life

I thank you for my grandchildren

For love and warm support

And hope you like this birthday pome

Heartfelt if somewhat short
