For My Son on His Birthday

My son David turned two today. Though I don't think it's quite finished I wanted to share this poem I wrote for him.

For David

Oh my lovely little boy
Your sweet presence is a joy
You wake me up every day
Crack of dawn so you can play
Can't climb up there but you still try
Jump from high though you can't fly
Every day you make a mess
(The floor I see less and less)
You build great towers with blocks
Then down again you will knock
You love to scream oh so loud
Then dart into the mall crowd
That book we read once or twice
Every night (and that one thrice)
Even though you are quite wild
I love you my David child
