birthday thoughts

today is his birthday

twenty eight years of living

and living
is one of his gifts

it seems so long ago
that i didn't want him to grow
too fast

but even then,
i knew he was mine to hold
for just a season
that there was a reason
for letting go

it scares me to think
of all i'd have missed
had i resisted the passage of time
and tried to keep him
as mine
