Girl, it’s hard to believe you’ve come this far, so quickly!
An adolescent, through and through, it can be said of you,
With signs of the next stage very much in view.
Leaving behind those formative years of yore,
You continue a life-long journey of growth and development,
Leaving friends and family awestruck and pleasured.
So strike up the band, we’ll dance a jig,
For celebrating another bench mark is a worthy cause,
Knowing Papa Nate is leading with a waltz no less!
Happy Birthday Samantha, with supportive joy from Petal, MS!
