My Kids

Matthew was my first, named for my brother Agreat heart he has, a good 14 year old he is Truly a miracle, when first he was born To the top of his blond head, I gave him a kiss He, from the start, became my best friend Everything he ever does, meets with success Will always be my baby boy, until the day, I lay to rest. Kayla, my first girl, an angel from heaven Arrived in this world just twelve years ago Yelling to all that I had a daughter, proud dad I am Letting all see her beauty and my love that showed An angel she is still today. Megan, my second girl, still such a beauty Earned all my love even before she was born Gives to me, now, for the ten years I’ve known her A love that is genuine, sometimes funny and always warm Never leaving anyone without a smile. Daniel, the baby, is just now eight years old Actually tries to do everything, always alone Never gives up when things might be difficult In fact sounds quite older, when on the phone Ever the one to jump without thinking Leaving me scared, but proud to call him, son. My every wish for them in life is all their dreams to come true Young typical children they are and good children, too! Knowing them is to appreciate them even more Inspiring others, somehow they really can and do Deepening my love for them each and every day Simply because they’re about and giving love, true.
