You receive a valuable birthday gift from someone you've never heard of -- what is the gift, who sent it, why ....... ? First or third person is okay.

The Mystery Delivery

The doorbell rang, to my surprise!
Your gift was there, it looked so nice

and thoughtful, and valuable, too!
At first, I wasn’t certain who

sent me that loaded jewel’ry case.
And how that myst’ry’d not erase

my pleasure at your birthday gift—
just thinking now gives me a lift!

You were my mom’s best friend at school,
where you both learned the golden rule!

And now, you’re trying to find me—
to be sure I’ve grown up happy.

You promised her you’d find me grown
and that you’d love me like your own!

So, now I have your jewels, dear—
and birthday wishes, so sincere!
