Today is my son’s birthday!
50 years of seeing him grow.
50 years of joy mixed with sadness
Embracing the vagaries of life.
This is a good day,
Family and friends wish him well.
This is a good day, we laugh, we joke
All is well.
For a moment a memory of his birthday past,
The death of one that held us fast.
It’s been a year,
How can that be,
Friends and family have no words to console,
A year has past.
Today is my son’s birthday,
I choose to celebrate!
