A letter-poem to my nephew Ben….
On the day you were born…well it was FANTASTIC and AMAZING and MAGIC. (Imagine how your parents felt, I am just the crazy Aunt)
On the day you were born you made all of our hearts melt, a new kind of love that had never been felt. There was cheering and crying and laughter and smiles, a new baby was here, its a boy!!!! Surprise!!!!
On the day you were born as I was rushing to leave, I had a big fall, a big bruise on my forehead, a funny story for all.
On the day you were born, as I sat in a chair, your dad rushed in, with his big bushy head of hair. “It’s a boy, he is here!” he declared while grinning, these are his footprints, I have them right here!
On the day you were born, both of your Grandmothers cried, a little bit of themselves in your beautiful face and eyes.
One the day you were born, the best faces of all, were those of your parents, who kept staring in awe.
Dr. Seuss I am not, so this random letter poem is done, and on the day you were born, a big adventure was begun.
