Another birthday, you’re turning four,
Spoilt rotten, presents galore,
My little hero is growing so tall,
His footprints no longer tiny small,
Time goes by so very fast,
We need to make memories to last,
We spend the day with family and friends,
You’re wishing and hoping the day never ends,
Cake, sweets and faces covered in jelly,
Playing games and filling your belly,
To see you laugh, smile and play,
Is always the best part of every day,
Blow out the candles and make a wish,
Things couldn’t get more perfect than this.
The anticipation has come to an end,
It’s almost time to meet our new friend,
It’s 2 in the morning, the pain kicks in,
Here he comes, his life will soon begin,
I am scared stiff, what lies ahead?
Screaming out in the hospital bed,
The pain is so bad just want him here,
I have never felt so much fear,
25 hours later he’s in my arms
Hoping and praying he comes to no harm,
His big blue eyes and cute little face
Look up at me to say,
How did I get to this place?
I promise him right there and then,
I will love him forever, until the end.
