Happy Birthday Son! (For Andrew)

Today, 34 years ago he made his grand entrance
God placed him in my care
Until the day of His appearance
My heart was filled with happiness 
For this child that God has blessed.

Just look how you have grown!
You have been through happy times
You have been through sad times
But through it all you remain
A son I am proud to call my own.

    Children, not time it seemed, make us old ... it takes courage for me to say them happy birthday, but if I forget they will take my head ... so I am sure yours is safe. Congratulations.
