Andrea, what a beautiful birthday present.
Many happy returns to
Your wonderful Grandma
Got to say this is a
Really beautiful dedication
And I hope you showed it to her.
Never have I read anything so sincere.
Do you think you could be any sweeter?
My thoughts are still with you
And I was so elated when you said she had come home.
Lovly is missing
One letter, the E (lovely)
Understandably you love her and
I would love her too.
Sincerely I am
Ecstatic she is home.
Happy birthday Louise and well done Andrea.
Honestly, as I read this I completely forgot that it was an acrostic, it did not feel forced or awkward at all. The capitalizations did not feel like they were out of place and the stanza breaks actually only enhanced the meaning of each one. This was absolutely lovely. There's so much love, gratitude, and kindness oozing from every word of this - and it is both inspiring and captivating. I really had to scrutinize this to find anything negative, and I still don't have anything - so that is amazing. And it is a very clear representation of both the author and the generosity of the world. Really, in it's own way, this piece gave me hope
