I was four days late there will never be Grandparents I was one week late they Will never hold their Lover's sleeping Figure I was 11 days late they will Never breathe in a Sunset and a sunrise In the same night I was two weeks late They will never learn to jump rope I was Three weeks late they will never shout Watch Mommy watch me on the slide I was two months late A piece of us will never wrap their arms Around our leg for comfort Just to keep them from falling down And I am sorry That this process is so slow And all you can do is wonder if you ever Had a place You did You still do Don't forget that Yours Ethan P.S I never hated you [Applause]
