When you were sweet sixteen

Lines written for my darling daughter’s sixteenth birthday, verse 52 (yes, really!) no better but the feeling still as true on her wedding day 1/6/22


Now as you reach that milestone sweet sixteen,

Please don’t think you have all the answers yet.

When we say ‘no’, it’s not just to be mean,

But help you miss the traps that life can set.

So happy birthday, darling Ponseline

Of all these lines just these last don’t forget:

Whatever sadness, joys and Mr X fate has in store

For you, do know you have a dad who couldn’t love you more.
