We've been friends since the beginning,
when the braces ruled my face;
You've made me laugh so hard
I spit milk all o'er the place.
(some went in your mouth, remember?? Serves you right.)
We had a notebook we called 'Barney'
that is still perched upon my shelf,
we filled this book with secrets
meant for us and no one else.
I could share pictures, tales, and nicknames
that would make you turn quite red-
but I'd have to make it rhyme,
so I'll just say this instead:
You may have rolled in dog poop;
You may have (oops!) peed by the shore;
but you'll ALWAYS be my bestest friend-
the one I endlessly adore.
You are the vibrant daughter
of a dearest friend of mine,
I've heard your lovely singing voice
and think that it's divine!
You are a little princess,
you've even got the dress-
you've got grace and spunk galore
you'll always be a huge success...
The world is your oyster, darling-
Carpe Diem! Seize the Day!
Turn that box into a Broadway stage
and your heart will lead the way!
