I've been wanting to post this for a while, but here is a beautiful Birthday poem that Auntie Whitney wrote for Corinne on Corinne and Kaitlyns' birthday:
My darling dear, forgive me, but I cannot tell a lie,
I'd much prefer to spend your birthday with you by my side,
But I'll tell you a little secret, I've never told a soul,
I heard it from a whispering willow a long long time ago.
A birthday girl is special, but a birthday angel is divine,
To bestow their birthday wishes all the Saints stand in line,
Every single angel, yes every single one,
Sings her Happy Birthday in choral unison.
Her candles are volcanoes,
Her balloons are shooting starts,
Her presents come from Earth and Sky and galaxies afar.
So Corinne, please know we'll celebrate you until you're 97,
And if you'll be strong, we'll try too, 'cause (shhhh)...
The cupcakes are better in heaven.
Corinne and Kaitlyn McCarthy were both due to be born 1 year and 4 days ago.
Whitney is a big lover of cupcakes! :)
