Sam is Six

Happy Birthday, Samantha. You’re beautiful, smart, strong, funny, and kind. I’ll love you forever. 

“Sam Is Six”
By Ryan Mentock

Six.
Years, you’ve been alive.
You’ve grown up,
Yesterday, you were Five.

Nothing in your way,
Years, turned into more.
You’ve been loved,
Yesterday, you were Four.

Nothing I could say,
Years, you’ve been with me.
You are the smartest,
Yesterday, you were Three.

Nothing you won’t fix,
Years, I’ll be with you.
You are an artist,
Yesterday, you were Two.

Nothing I won’t miss,
Years, still to come.
You were by design,
Yesterday, you were One.

Nothing ever since,
Years, I have sworn,
Your life changed mine,
On the day you were Born.

Everything for today,
Years, I knew your name.
I love you so much.
Tomorrow, more the same.
