Melissa, a birthday poem for @Missy_Pierce_3 by Tracy Diane Miller

There was a little girl
Whose heart protected her dreams with care
Her talent need not be a secret
Talent watches patiently
Yet is always aware

But time embraced this little girl
Endowed her with a special gift
The woman that she became
With her smile as bright as the flame of a candle
Prepared to give those in need a lift

She is a daughter and sister
She is a friend
To have her as a co worker
Brings joy to a job
Melissa is someone for whom you can always depend

Let the yellow rose of Texas
Her beauty and strength lead the way
Let your heart remain open to hear
The chorus of best wishes on your birthday
