This was a poem I wrote for my son's birthday. It is short and sweet but was personally written for him April 7, 2008.

A Blessing You Have Been To Me

A blessing you have been to me

Without you life would have been empty

I wish more patience I would have had

I wish more good and less of bad

You were formed in my womb

Before you had being

Before I saw you

God was seeing

A special boy

And now a man

And fashioned by God's own plan

I don't have much money

But this is a part

Of what has come from within my heart

Happy Birthday Chris!!

I think he respects me the most besides my daughter. The rest of my children have not reached that maturity yet. Love you.
