I will never claim to be a "poet", but below is something I wrote to Brad. He was two at the time and we were at Disney World. He must have rode the carousel 25 times that day.
After this weekends events, and seeing my friend so torn apart, it seemed appropriate to share this with you.
The bell rings,
As the music begins,
Your world starts spinning,
when will your innocence end?
Your eyes turn from blue to hazel,
Smiles flash by again and again,
Your life is spinning by me to quickly,
stop the ride so,
I can say I love you.
Give your kids extra hug today, tell a friend that you love them, do something nice for a stranger.......
