I recall our night-time ritual with fondness. Armed with your two binkies and two more for good measure, we’d search the inky dark sky for the moon. Holding you in my arms I traced your tiny form snuggling close to my chest and shoulder, a memory you cannot recall and one I will never forget. As your slumbering innocence relaxed into me, I softly sang the lullaby St Judy’s Comet and together we bonded over nothing and everything. Your gentle, steady baby’s breath filling our space was so sweet a flower is named for it.
On this day my sweet baby boy, your 21st birthday, I wish you happiness, good health and all your dreams to come true, the very same wishes I declared the moment you were born. I also wish for you special night-time rituals of your own someday so you will know just how special ours were to me so many goodnight moons ago.
