for Gabriel…

you did not come from inside my body
but you live inside my heart.
you’ve worked your way into my  life
and lit it with your spark.

‘though times we’ve made each other crazy,
both shed our share of tears
i know we’ll be there for each other
for many, many years.

i know how my heart smiles because you live there
and how my life is second to none
and so, gabriel, i want you to know i love you
and im proud to call you- my son!
