For My Son, On His Birthday


Four years ago today around midnight, I felt my soul tremble.
Over the next twenty-six hours, you debated your arrival. Then with all my heart, body and soul, I claimed you as my son. You were greedy, yet grateful and I swore to always protect you. I never understood the incredible power of pure love until you shared it with me.

When you turned one, I celebrated for you. When you turned two, we shared the cake. At three, you stole the show. Now you are four and you want to share your day. I’m so proud of the little boy you have become and I can almost see the young man you will grow up to be.

There are many days before us and I can’t wait to share your world with you.
Today however, mommy wants to hold her little boy longer than usual. I want to pour over your baby photos and once again commit them to memory. I want to watch you sleep, breathe and dream.

Happy Birthday my baby, mommy celebrates your life with you this day and everyday!
