You are born and,
Champagne is drunk in my room.
The only boy after a spate of girls—
the 4th child in a flock of five
Seb you are much
more than gender identity.
You are one of the most valuable people I have met
And, not because you are our son. In spite of it.
There is a grace about you that is unsurpassed.
Fun and playfulness become you,
you love a joke or two
I so enjoy our talks —
on books, film and music.
or whatever you put your mind to–
You have the best playlists— wink wink
Super driving skills, I’d drive anywhere with you.
I appreciate your vanity, after all,
who does not like to look good?
blame it on Venus in the 1st house
BUT, it’s your kindness and gentleness that I just adore
You are one in a million who could ask for more?
Today you are 21. A man, my son.
A party at Anderson road is what we’d done
To help celebrate your birthdate
The family is sorry that we are not there
you are in college and have plans in the make.
A celebration will happen when you are back home.
So cheers to you and all you do.
Your goodness is so profound it
makes me want to weep, my love for you,
eternal absolute and deep.
Happy Birthday Seb. Hope there is cake.
I was looking for a recent photo and believe it or not could not find one.
So here’s looking at you, Seb. Gosh you were cute. The girl next to you is pretty cute, too.
