I wrote this poem for Clayton's 12th birthday. It was read at his funeral by my good friend Chari.
Our dear son here is a poem,
Just for you,
Cause we love what you do!
I have no clue,
What we’d do without you.
Who will mow the yard?
Or do the breakfast dishes so hard?
So you see,
Without you very unhappy we would be!
Cause we don’t like to mow
And we certainly don’t like to snow blow!
Your yummy chocolate cakes,
You so love to bake.
Well they are the best
Way above the rest!!
Your so cool,
How you can ride your bike with no hands!
If we had a mule,
I know you would ride him doing a handstand!
You find egots without even looking,
And you help with the cooking.
Yep, you're good at everything,
Even baby brother sitting!!
Thanks for helping to plant seeds,
And hoeing and tilling the weeds.
Picking the beans,
And shelling the peas.
This poem said we love you,
For all that ya do!
But especially for just being YOU!
I am a wife to my wonderful husband, Paul, of over 22 years. Mommy to 9 blessings, ages 21 to 3 years. Our 2nd oldest son, at age 14, has gone on to be with the Lord on April 19th, 2017. I share about that new road we are on here on my blog.
My first 7 years of blogging.
Great inspirational reading!
