Photo - 1984
On January 19, 1982, I was 28 years old and gave birth to the first of our three sons. He turns 30 years old today. He is a gift beyond measure.
You emerged from the cocoon
Seeking love, sustenance,
Sleep, more love, more sustenance,
Slowly exploring your world,
Learning, listening, discerning
Even then making moves
An early interest in
From finger paints
Piano to trumpet,
To A Wrinkle in Time,
To Star Wars,
All part of your human mind,
The mysteries of the universe
With a keen curiosity.
How did you grow from a tiny seed
To the person
I see today?
The greatest mystery of all
Is the greatest gift
Wonderful tribute to a loving kind young man.ReplyDelete
Birthdays of children, no matter their age, are intensely important days for their mothers as well.
Agreed. These landmark birthdays are a good time to reflect on all the goodness one life brings to the world.ReplyDelete
