Cherished Aunt

I couldn't ask for family I cherish more than you.

It makes me proud of whom I'm related to.

Always there when times are rough.

Staying strong through what you are forced to deal with must be tough.

But still you always have a sense of humor through it all.

I get excited in case you're coming to visit whenever you call.

No other Aunt could take your place.

My most favourite one of all, such a familiar face.

Ever since I was little I picked you over anyone else.

You've always been there for me and understood how I felt.

Every drive with you leads to a new adventure, a new memory.

There's always something fun to do, and I get absorbed in reverie.

When we spend time together, life becomes one big party; a big celebration.

We turn the music up louder and dance to our favourite station.

So I couldn't imagine a life without the love and support you provide.

The best Auntie I could ask for, I'm happy when you're by my side.

Here's to many more fun filled years ahead.

When I'm ecstatic to see you, there's other family to see that I dread.

You can choose your friends, but you can't choose your family.

But if I have to pick I'll always choose you, circumstantially.

Happy Birthday and best wishes to the greatest Aunt in the world.

Just know you make this Niece of yours one proud and happy girl.
