Father's Day Poem

me quiero expresar
es imposible que dar
a usted
the love, the respect that I feel

me quiero decirle
a usted
lo que sentirse
among men
you are my ideal

Birthday Poem for Gavin Henry, 9 Years Old

we hope you enjoyed the day
a week early, but it's all just the same

there was food, and some basketball too
there's one thing that's still left to do

the cake and the candles are done
and happy birthday was by all of us sung

but there's one thing that's left to be given
a gift, that great birthday tradition!

we thought of this, and of that, and the other
and we dismissed them one after another

but an idea from nowhere just came
we'll give him a ___, and enjoy a game!

(We gave him a baseball glove and the promise of a Mariners game.  The basketball reference was to watching the Mav's kick the Heat's a*s!)

Mother's Day Poem

Every mother loves her son
I'm glad for me
that you're the one

Every breath that I enjoy
I've you to thank
Because I'm your boy

every time i think of you
my soul is sated
I feel renewed

Every year in early May
I wish you
Happy Mother's Day.
