Your 12th Birthday

You would have been 12 today…

And I saw you in the wisps of the clouds,

Floating by at the break of dawn.

I felt you in the wind that

Kissed my cheek.

I heard you in strings of Dvorák

And the horns of Davis.

As I’ve traveled the world,

You’ve been part of my soul

Peering through the sun

in between the shadows of oak trees

I fell in love with you the moment we met,

But you left us too soon.

I’ve missed you every day since.

Although you are not here,

You are with me everywhere.

Happy Birthday, sweet Jack

You are my heart.
