It was this day
Only twenty-one years ago
That our world was
Blessed by you it
Had absolutely no idea
What it was missing
Until you showed us
You my dear boy
Are just simply lovely
Like that one sunflower
In a peonies sea
That one taller than
All flowers whose head
Is always tilted upwards
And like the sun
Rooted to the earth
Your smile warms and
Welcomes and follows east
To west oh my
But you are a
Treasure on a beach
Happiest of Birthdays Jadon
On behalf of all
Of us may these
Wishes bring you joy


And now finally emerging 
Like a cattail seed
From its pod the
Wind which previously shook
And now carries being
Dropped and lifted and
Almost like flying and
Then floating and landing
Rolling and tumbling and
Spinning until one catches
On something and now
That something is home
This is I think
What love is like
Nothing more and nothing
Less significant or important
Just one thing and
Then eventually something else


Trust when I say 
Bad things will befall
You but bad things
Are just like good
It really does depend
On how you look
Upon them do you
Look upon what they
Are or what not
Neither is right and
Neither is wrong how
You eventually look upon
Anything anyone and anywhere
All depends on positivity
Or the lack thereof
Life is too short
To be worried take
The high road look
On the bright side
The views are better
From way up there
