22 + one

Four years have passed since I first gathered the poems for your 22nd birthday, so I added four more for you.

The first is on this page, and the others are after the 22nd.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading these as much as I enjoyed creating them while recalling the precious years we shared together and while continuing to look towards a better future for us both.

 always & forever, Mom xxx


A poem is like a person
 take your time
 read it slowly
 soak in every line

A poem is like a person
 it leaves you wondering
 of greater things
