Thirteen years have gone so fast
Where did that time go?
It seems like only yesterday I’d brought you home.
So small and sweet and full of love.
Thirteen years as of today
You’re almost grown up
Almost a man.
So smart and handsome.
Thirteen years I’ve thought of you
Watched you grow from afar
Please be good, and brave, and gentle.
Be all the things I’ve dreamed of you being
Thirteen years, I’d wait thirteen more
Just to tell you all I’ve learned.
Thirteen Happy Birthdays
Songs I’ve missed.
Gifts I’ve stored but never could send.
Thirteen years I’ve loved you dearly
I’ll love you still thirteen more.
