Sometimes a birthday inspires a poem

And this was the case with my eldest grandchild’s birthday…

Jayden’s 14

Holy moly, can it be?
14 sounds so old to me
That little babe became a boy
Left behind each childish toy. 

And well into adolescence now
His horizons continue to grow
An exciting time envisioned ahead 
Certainly not something to dread. 

Life’s new challenges will be there
And sometimes these can scare
But loved by so many you are
All sure you’ll be a star. 

So, have a happy birthday please 
Life adventures will you tease
Will you do this or that?
Only you can choose your hat. 

Brian Matthews, 22-2-23
