Time Flew By So Quickly © Judy Muldowney

 
We can't begin to tell you
Just how loved you are
We can't believe how time has flown
And how you've come so far

Forgive us when we stop and stare
And tears fall from our eyes
Time flew by so quickly
Sure took us by surprise

We asked you to stay little
To always be our baby
You said, "I'll try to if I can,
but, I'll have to grow up...maybe."

Now here you stand before us
A respectful, honest man
Strong-willed and determined
Who always says, "I can"

We flip though all your notes and cards
And pictures that you drew
Recall your quips and humor
'Unique', dear son, that's you!

There are no doubts within our minds
That you'll indeed succeed
Your future holds so much in store
But 'that smile' is all you need

You've always been so gentle,
So loving, kind and giving
Having you as our son, Jon
Is another term for 'living'

No matter where life leads you
No matter what you do
We'll always be your biggest fans
And we'll be here for you.

A Verse by Alice Anne Gordon

 
Masks slip, faces seen
reveals a little of what's been.
Keys fit, gates swing
melodies of old sing.
Chase fate, catch dreams
illusions never are what seems.
deception cracks, pathways clear
turn the corner, dwindling fear.
Lion's heart, sword make known
the seeds of knowledge have been sown.
