A suitable poem to give to a daughter on her birthday is "How Fast the Time has Flown." The poem looks back nostalgically to childhood memories and forward hopefully to future events.
"How Fast the Time has Flown" includes sentiments such as "how quickly you have blossomed," "feel the love in all you do" and "today's a day for celebration." It can be adjusted to be a gift from one or both parents and is suitable for any age daughter. It does not contain any references to religion or spirituality, so it can be used by families of any faith background.
