Thank you for being you.
So much a part of me
and yet so much of he,
you will be what we are not-
Me, creativity, he ingenuity.
Me, devotion, he, locomotion.
May you boldly paint the world
with brilliant, brave emotion.
I am hearth and home,
he feels the need to roam.
I say hello, he waves goodbye.
Laughing, he leaves as my tears I dry.
Hold your loved ones close and never question why.
I am hopeful anticipation while
he is cautious contemplation.
I, slow to try-he ready to fly.
You will chase the shifting winds,
pausing merely to wonder why.
I am you. You are he. As long as you breathe,
We shall be.
You knew I had to! My little Opie.
Go ahead, get dirty! We had to shove your finger into that cake!
We have had some interesting cakes all these years. I think my favorite was the Star Wars cake though. But the best tasting was
Death by Chocolate. Yum…..
Your milestones should always bring back good memories for these are treasures from your youth.
And we are more proud than you will ever know of the man you are becoming.
Don’t lose sight of your dream……
Ya’ big weirdo!
No one loves you more.
Enjoy the magical moments of memories….
