When we planted the seed that became your life,
I constantly questioned who I thought you’d look like.
I wondered if you’d have my hair,
Your father’s perfect teeth,
Or your sister’s glare.
Would you have a serious nature
Or a silly little way?
Would you meld into our family
The same as night touches day?
I prepared myself for the mystery,
Of who you’d really be.
And what parts of your genetic history,
That we’d all be able to see.
Yet, what came as a surprise
Was not the looks you were bequeathed,
But the heart that beamed right through your skin
And the beauty that resided beneath.
How could I have ever known
The little man I loved before I met,
Would grow into an abundant joy,
And wash away all fret.
With a nature so loving and giving,
And a kindness you simply can’t hide.
With your sense of humor unmatched,
I am often filled with pride.
I never feel more loved,
Then when your arms wrap around my heart.
You are the most precious blessing,
And this bond can never part.
I am continuously amazed by your wisdom,
Of a world you share with me.
And am honored to be your mother,
When you show me all I can be.
Happy 7th Birthday to my J Man!
