Knobby knees, scrawny, but all muscle.
Amazing how the shape of your back and shoulders, already broad...
hint at the man you will become
when one day you grow into those puppy-like feet.
The sparkling mischief contained in your smile will never fade.
The deep chocolate eyes, blanketed softly with long lashes
will forever ask and search out the meaning of this world.
The sensitivity of your heart will cause you to weep over the injustice you find.
The boy will not be lost,
And his memory remain in me.
