While celebrating her 70th birthday, Goldie Hawn spent time with her daughter Kate Hudson, who posted a video tribute for the occasion on Instagram.

Set to the music of Ellie Goulding’s “Army,” the video shows the mother-daughter duo smiling and embracing on a plane decked out with cupcakes and a birthday banner. As this couldn’t be touching enough, Hudson also wrote out a poem that captures Hawn’s spirit.

On this day in the clouds I’m sure// A man had a plan for the twenty first// He took a sweet soul and said its time my dear// You must go back down to share your cheer// Your beauty will please// Your laughter will spread// You may even meet a man and be thirty years unwed// To many you will be their rising muse// And light will bath you in golden hues// So, with excitement she went back down to the earth// To meet her old friends, Laura Hawn to rebirth// She had no clue on that day what would be// And day by day it seemed God made her special in some way// She never seemed to follow in line// Always a bit on the outside, goofy by design// She danced her own beat// Played her own drum// Shook the worlds axis a bit being seemingly dumb// But dumb she was not// Smart as a whip// And her beauty was something many found hard to resist// But she had one desire that grew with the years// To be happy she says, to be happy without fear// People laughed in her face and said don’t be so silly// But she paid no mind to those who could not see as clearly// She may not have remembered that day in the clouds// But her message is pure and of the touch of God// Find your joy she says, what brings you joy// Live fearlessly facing the sun// Bath gently under the moon// Love all around you// Laugh till you cry// Cry till you laugh// We live till we die// She says live with all your might!
