Cora I can’t believe you turn 15 years old today,
You have grown to be truly beautiful more than words can convey.
I remember so clearly the day you were born, being totally amazed by how perfect you were,
From the tip of your toes, your perfect lips,to your fine blonde hair.
You were very loved right from the start, wherever you went you touched people’s hearts.
Old people, young people it didn’t matter, you would talk to anyone with your constant chatter.
Singing songs and performing ballet shows you were never shy,
Writing poems, stories and letters brought a tear to our eyes.
A real little bookworm you always loved school,
Wearing glasses you make them look cool!
With lots of sympathy, big hugs and kind loving words,
You have the ability to cheer everyone up by being funny and absurd.
Quietly confident you try to do what is right,
You rarely ever argue with your family or fight.
You’re really talented more than you know,
Your creativity shines out when you get into the flow.
You’ve always had your own unique sense of fashion,
More recently music and beauty have become your new passions.
Transforming us all with your makeup skills,
You help make others look stunning, even when they feel ill.
Your beautiful long hair is your pride and joy,
You love going into town to talk to your bffs and boys!
With the largest group of friends I’ve seen,
They’re all a really lovable bunch of teens.
You’re wiser than your years which at times can be funny,
You’re really very good when it comes to money.
Your sister and brothers totally idolise you,
They copy and say the things that you do.
We love you very much, you’ve made us very proud,
I’d like to freeze you at this age – if only it was allowed.
Thank you Cora for being you,
We all love you so much, we really do.
Love from your family xoxo
