Happy Birthday, Elena!

My dear one,

today is your eleventh birthday!

You know I haven't got enough money to buy you the world
or a lonesome island or give you expensive gifts.

If I could I would travel
to heaven and pick the brightest star for you.

If I could I would travel
the world just to tell all the people just how special you are to me.

If I could I would ask
the finest singers of this world to compose and sing you a special birthday song.

If I could I would swim
all the oceans of this world and gather all the animals within them to cheer just for you.

If I could I would climb
the highest mountains and get snow from their tops for you to play with.

If I could I would
let all the presidents of this earth give you an applause.

All these things I would do for you....and I can't!

But there are a few things I can do
and that is to tell you every day, that I really love you
and hug and kiss you and give you all the love I have. :-))

I know this will not seem much for most people, but for us two this is the best I can give.

And I just want to give you a little something for your way through life:

Don't ever forget that I love you and I am happy that you are here!

God gave a gift to the world when you were born—
a person who loves, who cares,
someone who touches each life she enters,
and makes a difference in the world!
There is no one on this world, that is just like you,
you are unique in your own shiny way!

I wish you the happiest of birthdays,
and many, many more,
so that others have time to appreciate you
as much as I do.

love and hugs
