Sweet Reward


Time gets away doesn’t it? Like yesterday
your teething was a subject of the hour
while now you’re one whole year and we
reflect on how it changed so rapidly 

Maybe you will not see it same as we
who’ve watched the seasons bloom;
though there’s no doubt you’ll offer
room to tender you our avid love

Your gorgeous smile accords in kind for
what we find to draw us in so willingly
a glow inclined within your sphere
as welcoming and sweet reward
