How many years have been and gone
Since mum & dad’s eyes brightly shone
Beholding their prize lovingly won
I’ll tell you, it’s been 21
All that time spent growing up
To fully fledged from little pup
From dolls to boys and making up
Let’s celebrate and drink a cup
21 years are all you’ve known
From little girl to fully grown
Perfect skin and structured bone
It’s time to branch out on your own.
