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.
