Welcome back readers!
My little boy officially turned a year old yesterday! I decided that this entry should be a little different, so to commemorate him being one for an entire twenty-four hours as of 5:48 PM today, I wrote him a poem. One that he hopefully won’t find superfluous when he reads it in the future. So without further delay, Happy Birthday my beautiful little Peanut.
“366 Days Later”
The day has finally come and gone, where you reached a magical age
But you have already brought such magic to my life throughout every stage
So my child, this is for you, and for all your quirks and smiles
It is amazing to see how fast you have grown, in leaps, bounds, and miles
I will always remember the first time I saw you, on that wonderful day
Trying to get the very best glimpse as I wiped my tears away
Tiny hands, fingers, feet, and toes, with a fragile body as well
Seeing my little one look back at me, oh how my heart did swell
And now fast forward to a year later, and I cannot believe how time flies
You learn so much every day and constantly grow before my eyes
Taking steps, learning new words, discovering wrong from right
Facing all of these challenges while forever staying happy and bright
And as I finish writing this now, Day Two of being a year old is near
There will continue to be trials in your young life, but never have any fear
Because my child, as you grow, there are things you will never be bereft of
As your mother and I will always provide our guidance, compassion, and love
-Until next time.
