Running from the time he could walk, and from what I hear–boy did he talk.
Raised on a farm as the only boy
He made his own fun, no need for a toy
Ornery, obnoxious, fun loving, and cute
He hasn’t changed much, though on a different route.
The first decade full of little boy things
Like soccer and baseball and the joy it all brings.
The 2nd of his life he’s growing into a man, while high school and college now take the stand.
By the third decade end, he had been pretty busy. A wife, three girls and a boy— sure makes you dizzy!
And now at the fourth, we look back and we see…that 40 years went so fast—can it really be?
Happy Birthday—my sweetheart, my companion, and friend. Another 40 more? I’ll be there to the end.
