32 years ago, i gave birth
was it possible was it worth it,
to have a child with a beautiful face
but not much grace.
who filled my days, with wonder and joy
did i have a girl?
no! a stinky little boy!!!
who played in the mud
who loved his grandparents
always on the go-
to drexel, to g'town
never slowed down
who wore me out day and night
til i tore my hair and looked a fright
who dressed as Batman
every day of the week
who looked like an angel when he was asleep
who went through phases
and growing up rages
who joined the army
and saw the world.
who stayed in Germany and married the girl
he wanted to have for the rest of his life
beautiful Petra, his bride his wife
he grew annd became a man with thoughts of his own
to become the Squirrel- my how he has grown
from my little child to the man of today
i wrote this to say i love you
