Twenty Two


Twenty Two

1. There are 22 lines on our faces…
2. You have 22 stories to tell.
3. You have twenty two reasons to not clean your room-
4. we have twenty two reasons of ‘whatever’ (for sure) you can bet that it is just as well.
5. Here are twenty two lines filled up with our love.
6. You are twenty two right after Election Day--
7. let’s hope they have a man in the White House before
8. you hobble down the aisle at your own daughter's wedding, indeedy--if'n you will!
9. Beyond what’s going ‘round in our country
10. over the top and down the hill,
11. these 22 years what a blessing they’ve been
12. to call you son
13. now
14. take your pill.
15. Here are 22 tokens of affection
16. and twenty two heap fulls of love, hope, and joy---
17. Dad and I sure do regret not having 22 thousand dollars to buy you
18. a brand new toy.
19. Seriously son-you are heaven
20. toil and a smile for the day
21. thank you for being the person you are--
22! (...a marvelous collection….of your idiosyncrasies…and some pretty major 'brilliancies,' too—all your nuances that we savor;  what a ‘wonder’ we find you…the ‘boy’ that we love, on our couch with hair tousled—you grace us with your presence-do stay.)
