Birthday Wishes

I wish I could see you againkitten
For real, and not in my sleep.
To hear your deep voice
Bellowing in that yellow jeep.

I still remember that first birthday
Your face stuffed with cake.
And all the ones after,
cowboys, star wars, and the lake.

But wishes are all I have now.
And despite wanting more,
There are no more happy birthdays
And no more growing old.

You touched so many lives
With that personality and infectious smile.
You always did things your way
With your own sense of style

But I wish I could see you again
Besides in the haze of a dream,
Or in the wings of a dragonfly
Or the freshness of a breeze.

Happy 22nd Birthday Chris.

I wish,
I dream,
I miss

Love Dad.
