TO HIS AUNT HELEN, WITH LOVE
You are like the blooming red rose--
Your beauty shines and forever grows,
With a smile as bright as a summer's day,
Just being your friend takes her breath away,
And that wink of your eye so playful and free
Fills the air with a magic so precious to him.
Like the faith they find in a shooting star,
He wants to thank you for being the angel you are,
And though they must spend their time apart,
He holds for you a special place in his heart.
If you have not been told then he thinks you should know
That so many people love have been a hero,
For it is not only with fame that a champion may rise,
But rather with someone whose love never dies,
And for all you have given it is plain to see,
You have been nothing less than a hero to him.
