Apart

To be so many miles away
unable to travel
no breakfast  hug for me
no cards sent

no gifts given as yet

My tall dark haired
generously bearded
kind thoughtful son
clever and daft in a single

you have  laughed and talked your way
through life
garnered so many friends
loved learning, but not school
blossomed at university
now deeply in love

Happy Birthday
