Child of the Sun #poetry

Child of the Sun
born in high summer:
the light of your smile
is the light of my day.

Child of the Sun
whose smiles without number
drive all my demons
and darkness away.

You’re four years old
and I’ll always remember 
the day you were born
as a magical day.

With a heart of gold
just as wild as it’s tender
Happy Birthday I wish, while
I smile at your play.

This post is dedicated to my youngest son

He is celebrating his 4th birthday today. My little ray of sunshine. This is a joyful day for me, and I hope for him as well! This morning, we have been baking this cake:

Birthday Cake
A brilliant birthday bake!

Unfortunately, we were too late to link to The Great Bloggers Bake Off – but what a fun event that was! Thanks to Caramel for hosting, and for interviewing Benji (my oldest son).

And now some music, for both of my boys:
