oh little one with claws so very small
even your little cries are a sweet sound
it's hard to believe some day you'll be tall
when you're found asleep in a little mound
you are a bit of sugar in coffee
you, sent to illuminate the dark spot
a bit of butter in sour toffee
your smile always seems to mark the dot
not anything will ever come between
I dare for anything to even try
for nothing will ever make our love lean
promise me we will not part till we die
siblings we are and we will always be
I wish from rose tinted glasses you see

My little brothers mean alot to me, so I'm dedicating this to them, my sweet boys. (Will age 4, Ellis age 2, and little Bailey, age 2 months) Recently, my youngest brother Bailey was admitted to the hospital with a broken skull and later on they figured out he had spinal meningitis. After struggling with in the hospital with strokes of about a month, Bailey will finally be returning home to us this week. It's really a blessing that he fell, because if he hadn't had then they would not have found the meningitis and he would have died. You really never know how precious something is until you almost loose it. Love you Bails.

It's not about success; it's about significance.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

That was beautiful!! I'm so glad to hear that he is okay!!! I know how you must feel because i have two little sisters of my own. I can really relate to this poem. It is a blessing....they must be so lucky to have an older sibling that cares so much about them :)
