Birthday


Photo by Ulle Haddock©
 How fragile You were held the first time.
 How fragile You tried to fit in at school.
 How fragile You tried to find meaning in life.
 How fragile You tried to understand the world.
 So loved You touched so many hearts, not knowing why.
 So loved You now found peace. 

It is my sons birthday today. He should turn 21 years old, but he is no longer in this world. I was not sure if I should post anything today but I share this poem I wrote for his obituary notice. The poem is called Fragile and was originally posted August 27, 2020.
