Happy Birthday Sean Alex!

Three years ago today
A sweet soul joined us on earth
Helpless and small
Tubes, wires and alarms
Spirit unbroken
Strength abundant
Body battered
Breathing labored
Sedated
Quiet and
VERY VERY STILL
Many tears fell
For three weeks
Our angel fought
To heal his lungs
Alone
Where machines rattle
and hum
People poke you
Hurt you
Scare you
Home is where this little one belongs
The great doctor proclaims
With his three brothers
Where the warmth of his parents
Their beating hearts
Will comfort him
and heal him
Home he came
To the welcoming arms
of his family
Where he grew
and grew
and grew
Into the beautiful
Brown eyed
Curly haired
Rambunctious
Silly
Smart
Strong
Loving
Kissy kissy kissy
Big three year old
He is today

Happy Birthday darling boy!
