My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. - Maya Angelou

letting go is not as easy as it seems
seeing in the ways as i do now breaks my heart
to see you grow up so easily as i know that may never get to be in pain for you again
yet i am happy for now i know that you can be free and yourself
your talent some where deeper 
i miss the ways we use to run 
i miss the way we used to play
oh miss you this very day
as you know this so much for me
i knowing now that this is your day 
i am very happy for you
as i remember you i shall not forget 
i know one day we will walk down the same roads we will watch each other
but all those broken promises i cannot burry deeper than my love for you on this birthday i know for you now all grow that my oldest hero is gone away but is not far out of reach
