paper hats and party dresses

it was her 7th birthday
and all the girls came,
and they ate birthday cake
and played party games;
pink plastic baskets,
pink paper frills,
pink candy favours,
played pin-the-tail;
her best friend came,
her best friend was there,
signed her card
to Carol A.L.
from Donna M.C.
46 years pass,
seems too quickly,
no more party dresses,
no more party hats,
she has the card
in the jam cupboard,
still good friends
after all these years.
