You've been my butterfly
since your birth.
I love you so much,
you're of great worth.

I've never seen such perfection
the love shown in your eyes
We love the personality you show
Oh how I hate it when I say my good-byes.

Many memories already created.
You are such a cutie.
All of your smiles
add true beauty.

Everybody seems to love you; How could they not?
Mostly the smiles you give.
What do I want you to see?
The good life I will live!

The rhyme scheme is ABCB throughout the entire thing.

I love this one! The rhythm is a little off in some lines like the word "personality" throws off that one line and so that stanza is different from the rest. I don't know if that was intended or what.
