Poem For Joey

Today you are six;
Your voice is a song
As sweet as the sound
Of a soft music box
And when you sing for me
There's nothing as bright
As the curve of your smile
You are so honest;
Naïve as a lamb
As clever as a monkey
As daring as a tiger
I love you as deep
As the layers of water
That ripple and shimmer
In the ocean's great depths
And I learn so much from you
About life, about spirit
About how to be sincere
When people are lying
I thank God for placing
Such a beautiful person
Into my arms
As my small, precious brother.
