Brand new blue dress
Hair & nails done
She walks through the door

Over 20 people in the house
All for her special day.
60 years old is no regular accomplishment
I hug her

Take a whiff of expensive perfume.
They went all out for tonight
Family surrounding me
Chit-chat chattering
Flicking to the food, like chickens on a farm

The love getting spread, butter on toast
Happiness- Radiant
The decorations excited to be part of the fun
My grandma is happier than I ever seen her

Her hands communicate how pleased she is
“This is nice” “I love it” “I’m so happy”
Everyone says
“Happy Birthday ““Happy Birthday “ “Happy Birthday “

The cake tastes like heaven on earth
Nothing can beat it…
except for the smiles on everyone’s face.
