Ian's First Birthday


First Birthday: Ian


A special day is on its way:

The day you came to be.

When you were born on a Haitian morn

In that land across the sea.


What I would do to be with you

On this very special day!

While miles apart, you’re in my heart

And so I want to say:


Ian, my son, my precious one –

Your life was meant to be.

God knit your frame and knew your name,

He holds your destiny.


May this day be filled with blessing; still,

I wish I could do more

To show you there how much we care,

And the hope we have in store.


But for today I can only say

Happy Birthday, cherished son.

We send our love through the Father above

Until, finally! – this wait is done.
