Birthday Tribute

From the East Coast seas to Central Ontario land

This journey took many plans

Boxes piled upon boxes and lists upon lists

You both drove and flew through the sun, rain and mist

With a deep exhale, you can begin settling in

Discovering shortcuts to the grocer

And a splash pad in your corner

The girls too are discovering their new home

And making it their own

Even helping to clean up

With baking soda by the cup

It’s been a busy time and it’s hard to find a moment or two


Pause and




You as a mother, daughter, sister and friend

You as an aunt, wife and physician

Happy Birthday Sister dear!

We’re all glad you’re near

Here’s to this new year

And the many adventures you’ll have in your new home here
