My Dearest Dede

DeAnnaLynn Marie

Eyes as blue as the sea

A smile so wide, laughter so sweet

Don’t you know? You mean the world to me!

From a baby I have watched you grow

Into the “Dede” we all know.

God has blessed us with you

This we know, is true.

I do believe that with your birth

The Lord subtracted years of hurt.

You see, my Dear One

Your existence brings our family home–

We all long to see you and smile with delight

So much that your Aunt will driveĀ  into the night

Just to see you for a few hours or so…

You are a piece of my heart, don’t you know?

I’ve loved you since before we even met!

Always,

Aunt Bre
