birthday boy



an elliptical journey
around the sun...

my son
speeding through space
67,000 mph
today completing
this trip
thirty-five times

if only we could
slow down
i never get enough
of you

so much to celebrate
admire
but today i remember
my walking buddy
miles of sharing
commiserating
wonder
and dreams

dear one
you birthed
a mother
creating new
purpose
meaning
another life

you
will always
be
my
boy

most cherished gift
