Happy 12th Birthday Daniel!



Your hand holds a yellow flower,
your hand holds the world. 
Before you were born I wished
for you,
dreaming of you.
You stand in the kitchen,
the sun playing with your hair.
Your hair once golden has turned to brown.
Your giggles turned into laughter.
You make me smile with your humor,
it comes so naturally to you.
You ask me if I love you more than your brother,
I laugh and ask you,
do I love my right side better than my left side?
Do I love my brain better than my heart?
They are equal to me,
as both of you are.
You laugh back,
"then I want to be your brain,
because the brain controls everything."
Morning snuggles,
wishing your nightmares away ,
I have waited for you all my life.
You are my sun on a rainy day,
you are my inspiration.
You are my heart,
you are my everything.
 
 
This is for my son Daniel. Happy 12th Birthday. You bring us happiness every day.
We love you. Happy Birthday and a happy life.

  3. Ayala.
    Brava, YOU! This is something he will hold in his hand (printed sheet) when he is age 90,
    and a tear
    will appear
    from 'neath lid...
    eye nearly hid.

    Oh, SWEETNESS above--and here below
    Upon us, please! PEACE bestow

  23. this is very cute and a really endearing piece. I love how kids always ask if their parent loves them more than there brothers and sisters. Me and my sister used to always accuse my mother of loving the other one better, so funny now looking back, really like the answers you gave him here. Wish a happy birthday for me

  34. I seldom leave a response, however I browsed through a few comments on "Happy 12th Birthday Daniel!".
    I do have a couple of questions for you if it's okay. Is it only me or does it look like a few of these comments come across as if they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I would like to keep up with you. Could you post a list of every one of all your social pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
