“When I have said my evening prayer,
And my clothes are folded on my chair,
Mommy and daddy switch off the light,
I’ll still be a baby boy tonight.
But from the very break of day,
Before the children rise and play,
Before the darkness turns to gold,
Tomorrow I’ll be one year old…
One kiss when I wake,
One candle on my cake.
A goodnight kiss for the baby boy
To send him to sleep and to dreaming.
And blessings to the one year old
Who’ll climb out of bed in the morning.”
-from The Birthday Book
Thank you, Graham. For an enlightening, warp-speed, heart bursting, stretching, loving, awesome year. You light up my world, sweet boy. I can't wait to kiss your one-year-old cheeks in the morning.
We adore you.
