My Son’s Seventeenth Birthday
(Inspired by a waitress on the job)
By David Smith August 26, 2010
My Son’s birthday; felt like it was mine;
Gave birth to him; seventeen years, in my youthful prime.
At work with the memory to celebrate the day;
The love of my life; as a toddler he could play.
Seventeen years later he is still on the scene;
Childhood memories, so vivid and keen;
My son’s birthday; time will not stand still;
Memory of his birth, remember the thrill!
