* Happy Birthday my Son

Walking around in the store
down the cake isle I see the
cake mix I use to buy for you.
To bake your all time favorite,
cherry chip, white icing with
canned cherries on top of it.

It made me sad because your
not here for me to make it for you.
I almost bought it anyway to make
it and bring it to your grave and we
both could eat it together but it would
not be the same so I left it there.

I came home got out your baby book
flipping through the pages of photos.
You were once so small, so innocent
my baby boy how I miss you son.
So are you having cake in heaven?
along with your chocolate ice cream.

I cant believe it has only been 7 months
sense your passing it seems like a life time.
Are you and Maggie behaving and doing 
all the things God is asking you both to do?

'Happy Birthday' my Son never forget that
because God took you with him first does,
not mean you and maggie are not in my thoughts.
You are my heart both of you I will see you 
again some day but until then just know your
Mom is okay and wishing a great and happy day.
