Gee, I’m Glad You Were Born.

Happy birthday, my love. I think you’re the tops.

And in case the WWF title belt doesn’t quite hit the spot…

Who is this man
to whom I have given my heart, my life?
I know his sweet scent
but I do not know
him

I know his tenderness, gentleness
yet he is a
warrior
ready to do battle for what is his—
sword gleaming
armor shining
chariot fast, furious
inescapable

This, too, is beauty
weighty
grave

A hard beauty carved of iron and stone
diamonds and gold
crowned with purpose
righteousness
goodness
joy

Look upon him
with fear
and
love

(Sorry your name is M.I.A. as yet on Amazon, but we’ll fix it.) I’m so proud to have created this with you. What beauty you will bring to the world in your next 31 years…and the next…

I am a rose in sunlight / a lily in the shade of your love

And I am
Yours,

Aly
