    It is almost the end
    Of Summer...

    And

    I must prepare
    To say "Good-bye"
    To aging flowers

    And

    The light brown bloom
    Of my Julian's eyes
    Born...
    On the eighteenth day
    Of November

    And

    It is almost the end
    Of Summer...

    Fall winds will blow
    The petals away
    All that...matters
    Has now turned to gray

    And

    I know
    That I will always remember
    That mischievious smile
    He wore proudly
    Upon his face

    Yes
    The kitchen will keep cleaner now
    No more cereal or spilled milk
    On the table

    But

    Where will his muddy footprints go?

    I promise to trace his tracks
    Through the winter

    Make sure he doesn't slip
    On fallen snow

    Yes...

    It is almost the end
    Of summer

    And

    Like delicate flowers...
    spreading beds underground
    In harsh seasons.....

    He is 'special'

    And

    I will quilt him
    with my motherhood
    While he resides...ten years old

    In a Group Home

    Julian is VERY special

    and God knew what He was doing when He loaned him to you...and you know what?, God speaks "Balloonian"... Julian will always know his mother loves him above all.

    I have peace because I know that Julian was born to smile; reminding us that we all should cling to the sweetness, the innocence and the love of a child's heart.

    This piece is exquisite, Ms. Hunter. I feel you.

    thank you for sharing your soul

    a
