You arrived far too early…
And brought your best friend.
Your next moment left unpromised,
Born with my heart in your hands.
I love you with everything
I never knew I had,
You gave me just what I needed:
You made me your Dad
We metered our expectations, yet
You’ve overcome so many things,
I don’t care if you ever walk, my Kate…
As long as you spread your wings.
I could never describe my pride, dearest Cole,
At seeing the man you’re growing to be….
Our world is but a humble stage for you,
You fill our souls with love and glee!
What sudden epiphanies we face in the dawn,
After all too short hours of balming repose,
Sometimes the giddy of morning’s first breath,
Is far sweeter than perfume of the imperial rose…
