When you were born our hearts were pleased,
We held you close.
We loved you so.
When you were one,
We thought we knew
How best to help a fine son, like you.
When you were two
Our hearts’ delight…
Even though you still cried at night.
When you were three
We both agreed,
No son on earth was loved like thee.
When you were four
We were so glad,
To witness all the fun you had.
When you were five
We set you free,
To explore the world and often trees.
When you were six…
We breathed a sigh
And said “this is one great little guy.”
When you were seven
We were so sure,
We’d be your friends till “heaven fell.”
When you were eight
It was a treat…
You loved Mom’s cookies and kissed her cheek.
When you were nine we knew you’d grow…
And often tried to tell you so.
At last came ten,
That special day…to have your birthday dinner in town,
And we drove to Alex’s Crown.
What happened after that is filled
With things that made our life a thrill.
Alas, the years did not stand still…
You grew so tall
So handsome, too…and, Craig,
We’ve always been so proud of you.
I hope your Craig is the same as my Craigg, but I doubt that...
Everyone should consider that all are equal to all others, no matter their ethnicity, sexuality, individuality,,,
