what i’m about to say is a little late,
but this past weekend you turned 8.
it’s better late than never,
and i love this picture we took at the river.
i don’t know how you’ve gotten so old,
but i’m sure glad you came around, they really broke the mold.
from your blond hair,
it makes strangers stop and stare.
to your awesome voice,
being a rockstar will be an easy choice.
lots of love to my little ben,
i think you’re a perfect 10.
