birthday Bday

For my loving Son, on his Bday..

I remember 
The day you came to our lives..
Carefully holding you the first time
Pressing your soft skin against mine
Your little fingers,curled around 
A true bundle of joy, you were the missing link
A tiny little life that completed our family
We clasped onto each other,
It never ever felt so fulfilling 
I remember 
The joy and excitement
Of seeing your baby tooth.
Papa hurling you on up to the stars
Catching you and asking for some.
Rising and falling as you took baby steps
Adventurous expeditions up & down the stairs
You chasing us on your rattling walker,
Repeating your nonsensical blabber.
I remember
Discovering you from secret hiding places
Playing tickle monster that brought loud laughs
Waking up to Vroom and Zoom of your cars
Scaring you with petty threats to pull you from shower
Your first day to school, away from me
I tried standing strong so you wouldn’t loose smile
Time flies
I’m a collector, I accumulate memories
With you growing fast, I’m picking & keeping them safe
You have now turned into a young lad
But I’m still the same mother
I long for moments of our time together
Hugs from you mean the world
I wish when you fly away, my little birdie
You come back with lots of laughs.
