Seventeen candles upon his cake
So many memories, make no mistake.
His first breath, his first cry,
His first “hello”, his first “goodbye”.
Our baby with his special bear,
Our little boy with his close-cropped hair!
From a little boy to a definite ‘rink-rat’
How did that happen so quickly,
It seemed like overnight!
That intense stare with those dark brown eyes,
His Credo became,
“No quarter asked or given and no ‘I’ in team”.
And of course, tell no lies.
And so today, he is part of the ‘Hilltop’
New friends, new lessons and new experiences
Each and everyday.
He tells us that this is one journey
He doesn’t want to stop.
And so our baby is now
almost a man.
His life stretching out before him
As he maps his own plan.
Our baby, our little boy,
Our teenager, our man.
You will always have love and support from us
As long as it is in Gods plan.
Not a care in the world,
Kick back, relax
And just have a great time!
