October 7, 1999
On this day 12 years ago
You stole my heart.
As soon as you took your first breath,
I knew you would do great things.
You had to have been the prettiest baby I’d ever seen, what, with your dark skin and hair
looking just like your daddy.
I have always heard people say,
time goes by too fast.
As a child I thought they were crazy.
It took forever for Christmas to get here, my birthday too,
It was slow.
I finally get it.
It seems like it was just yesterday that you were having your first birthday
and here we are
celebrating your 12th.
I’m so proud of you.
You strive for excellence
I know you will move on to bigger things
I thank God for allowing me to join you on your journey.
It has been a crazy beautiful ride.
