Xavier Cakes

I can still see his little toddler smile,
His cute chubby cheeks with dimples and all,
And what I always hold so dear about my child,
Is his motherís resemblance since he was small.

Now at fifteen he is way taller than me,
My old wrinkled hands fit inside of his palms,
But his likeness to my wife is uncanny,
With a cute button nose just like his momís.

And in the mornings when Iím brewing coffee,
His sleepy face gives me a drowsy smirk,
I serve him breakfast while weíre in a hurry,
He always tells me ďhave a good day at work.Ē

But what gets me about Xavier Cakeís smile,
Itís the way that he can light up any room,
His energy is contagious and tactile,
Like a wave of light can make a flower bloom.

A couple of days ago my son thanked me,
He said he feels lucky in many ways,
Heís happy he has a great family,
Then he gave me the smile that makes my day.
