A poem written by my dear Mom for my 40th B-Day

Memories of Fiona

No rose by any other name could be as sweet as Fee
And Fee's the sweetest thing to us that anyone could be.
Forty years have come and gone- they're neither here nor there
Because her soul remains the same- so fragrant and so fair.

We have so many memories of Fee-Fee through the years
And many words we often use because they once were hers
Like "Sparking spot" and "Bommie" and even "Flutterby"
Her dresses hung on "Hangcoats" and "I'm Hirsty!" was her cry.

When Fee-Fee smiled, her dimpled cheeks flashed messages of charm
"I'm gorgeous and I'm darling and your hearts I will disarm",
Her long and sultry eyelashes wooed all the passerby
They'd say, "Her eyes are stunning", and in admiration sigh.

Folks gave her many sweeties and she smiled and chortled too
And if she really liked you, she would share a kiss with you.
Dear Fee-Fee was OUR daughter and we cherished her with care!
And loved to have her in OUR arms and keep her very near.

Now Fee-Fee is a soul mate, a mother and a friend,
Her passion lies in giving love to others without end,
She took her wisdom with her but we thank the Lord above
That she left us with the memories and the treasure of her love.

Thanks Mom..... you will never know how much this touched my heart ........... I love you so much. xx
