happy birthday dear omi

thinking of you, dear oma/omi on this your birthday
how many time will we muse over the wonder that
if you never were, then our children wouldn’t be
so i post this precious photo of me with you, oma
holding me in the sunshine as you have so often
and i remain grateful that each of my children
have been held by you and your cool smooth skin
the spot just below your chin being the perfect place to rest

happy birthday, oma
we think of you every time eliza is called by her full name
(which is often due to her adventures)
and we love you
