Ever Ageless

I remember the year and the place 
like yesterday, and though it might 
seem far away, it isn’t displaced in 
distance but graced with indulgent 
memories; Wellington hosts many 
moments poignantly from halcyon 
years, your birth treasured among 
them - a son granted, a blessing 

We’ve come a way since then. Yet 
a father’s role swaps hands easily, 
you’ve grown into a man your own 
children proudly tease, a Dad able 
to say “They’re mine regardless - I 
wouldn’t ever want ‘em change!”
