Xavier's Smile

 
There are times
I want to shrink him down to the tiny baby I once knew
Blow raspberries on his tummy just to hear him laugh
There are times when I want to feed him that bottle
Just so that when heís done, he can throw it back

And heíll give me that smile...

Thereís something about his smile
It just lights up a room
Something about his spirit that makes this family feel whole
Even when he goes through difficult phases

Iím blessed to have such a loving son
To have been gifted such a wonderful soul
In the way he cares for others
Even as he fights to find himself

He is the future
The fruit of love
An enigma in progress
A verse in the making
Creating and crafting his own path into tomorrow
While he figures out today

And yet somewhere underneath all that
Thereís a part of me that still thinks of him as my baby boy
With his cute little dimples
And that contagious smile

Happy 18th Birthday
