There is much to be said about
For every year without fail
They knock on the door
To take and to give
Taking babies away
And giving children in return
Taking children away
Leaving teenagers in their place
Birthdays are for balloons
And cake and gifts and
Parties and
Birthdays are for
And birthdays will always be

  2. Aw, I can see how they are for parents, especially Moms, happy and also a bit sad. Babies can’t stay babies, can they? Happy Easter Vonita.
