now I have a 10 year-old
I seem to remember a May 7th when...
WAIT! Can it be that you are really 10?!!
Timely letters filled with birthday wishes
Are not my cup of tea.
Somehow everything was easier
When you were only three.
But, alas... those days are gone forever.
Each year that passes,
You just get better and more clever.
Happy Birthday, Abby!
Stop growing up so fast.
Try to enjoy your special day,
See how l o n g you can make it last!
