She made herself known to us as a line of joy that would streak across our life, altering it for the better from that moment on.
|WHERE did you come from, baby dear?|
| Out of the everywhere into the here. |
Where did you get those eyes so brown?
What makes the light in them sparkle and spin?
Some of the starry spikes left in.
Where did you get that little tear?
What makes your cheek like a warm white rose?
How did they all just come to be you?
God thought about you,
and so I am here.
Happy Birthday, Marlin.
We love you all the way to the moon and back again.
