~~I was thinking of my friend Ahna today. I remembered this poem I wrote for her. It's amazing how time slips by.~~

Sixteen winters come and gone;
Sixteen Springs to you belong;
Has there been time to find a home
For a heart that seeks perfection?

Sixteen years to face the sun;
Sixteen years when darkness comes;
In sixteen years could anyone
Own a soul that seeks direction?

Sixteen candles can not tell;
Sixteen wishes soon will fail;
What lessons learned, myths dispelled
In the mind that finds reflection!

Listen closely, my precious dear;
Learn to treasure each song and tear;
Grow to cherish all those years
That give you such complexion!

This is beautiful. My daughter turns sixteen this November. If you don't mind, I'd love to print a copy of this poem out for her.

LOL This is sooo cute. *Ode* has lovely rhythm and rhyme. I'm sure Ahna (gorgeous name, btw) was tickled to pieces when she read this. I know I woulda been. :)
