A poem by Joanna Fuchs called Your Birthday Means a Lot

“Mom, your birthday means a lot

Especially to me;

You’re smart and strong and all that’s good;

It’s true, indubitably!

That’s why I send this birthday wish,

That all your dreams come true;

May your life be filled with happiness,

Because, Mom, I love you!”

Your Birthday Means A Lot, Joanna Fuchs

“It’s your birthday, Mom.

So I will raise a cheer.

Without you, my special, loving mom,

I would not be here.

Yes, I owe it all to you, Mom.

From the time that I was small,

You encouraged me in everything,

And tried not to let me fall.

Throughout my life your caring,

Brightened each and every minute.

You loved me and enriched my life,

And I’m so glad to have you in it!”

I Owe It All to Mother, Karl Fuchs

Hiya, I’m Maud. I’m an English girl who's moved to Berlin - because who wouldn’t fall in love with a country which has words like ‘Kummerspeck’ hidden around every corner... I love traveling and finding out the quirks of each country - and what better way to remember them than on a postcard?
