Dexter's 2nd Birthday

2 years old in Heaven
Does time there pass the same?
Would you be walking & talking
& learning to say your name?

If you were here with me
a great party we'd enjoy
with cake & friends & songs
& you my little boy.

I imagine what you look like
& how your voice sounds too.
I long to hear you say the words
"Mommy, I love you."

So I celebrate your birthday
if only within myself
Instead of presents & cake
I decorate a shelf.

I miss you every day
not only once a year
Happy Birthday my sweet Dexter
Mommy will try not to shed a tear.
