Happy Birthday Wishes

Dear Daddy,

Roses are red
Violets are blue
This poem is from your daughter
with hair just like you

A long, long time ago
there was a boy named John
He looked a lot like me, they say
his hair was just as long

But now it's like a hundred years later
and we're celebrating the day
When the world was graced with your face
and in the crib you lay

I sure am glad your mom and dad
decided to bring you here
Even though the last 32 years
you've been a pain in their rear

But if they hadn't, I wouldn't have
the coolest daddy in town
Or the little finger on my hand
I have you wrapped around.

Happy Birthday, Daddy!
I love you bunches!!

P.S. - here are some interesting facts about October 28th in history.
