A couplet for Juliet

Another year passed, as you grow older,
I will always be your strong shoulder.
As days fly by, and you are my daughter,
Soon I'll give you away at the alter.
I love you so much, my words can't communicate,
That love for you will always be first-rate.
You are My diamond, my gem, and my unique pearl,
But most importantly, you'll always be my little girl.

People come in go in our lives.
From the person you walked past in the grocery store,
Or even a childhood friend that you have known for years.
People have an impact.
Be that good impact.
From a simple smile as we walk past them,
Or a shoulder to cry on when they have lost a loved one.
Look at every person,
As if it was the last time you will ever see them.
