Poetry Challenge Day 3



Today's poem is dedicated to my nephew Fabrizio whose 5th birthday is today. I hope my poem reaches him even though we are miles and miles away from each other. 


Fabrizio You Are Five   


Since you came into our lives five years ago
Our light is different
our smiles are different
our tunes are different

Because...
Since you came into our lives five years ago
our light is so much brighter than before
our smiles are so much bigger than before
our tunes are so much happier than before
Because...

Since you came into our lives five years ago
you give us light when we are confused
you give us a reason to smile when we are feeling blue
you give us a reason to sing from the top of our lungs.
Because...
since you came into our lives five years ago
I can't stop giving thanks to God for the best gift of all.

I wish I had seen this yesterday! I just sent off my neice's birthday gift and she would have really loved to get a poem. I am going to file this away for another occasion. What a great way to let him know how special he is to you.
