    time flies by in the blink of an eye
    it’s not just a saying
    cause you turned 9 years old today
    i watch you walk by me
    fresh haircut, standing tall
    bright eyes and a bright smile
    wearing your Nike’s
    more worried about the 3 point shot
    in your game and your gold chain
    your Playstation and your brother
    than you are about your mother
    but we still have our moments
    when you’ll lean over my shoulder
    and plant a kiss on my cheek
    or when I pull you to the side
    cause I’m catching you slide
    and I’m telling you now
    cause I see it in the moment
    and I call it like I see it, you know this
    about feelings and emotions just when you display them
    and daddy ain’t there to catch you this time
    but mommy still see’s you I have a different approach
    we do that vibe thing
    cause i understand you
    raising a black male child ain’t no joke
    but when it’s all said and done
    time flies by in the blink of an eye
    cause you turned 9 years old today
    and both your parents are here to stay
    we have your back through and through
    and we have lots more work to do
    so enjoy this day, you turning 9
    you’ll only do it, this one time
    happy birthday
    kyle
