Ode to Rocky Valentine
Sweet and Only
You are the one who would pat me on the back and say “it’s gonna be ok, mom.” My back patter.
My little round baby ball.
You stretched and grew and got dazzling and spectacular.
You are the coolest and smartest and kindest and good at things-est…. and also clearly the treasure chest. (heee your sister’s are reading this saying “SEEEE!”) Speaking of…boy, do you love your sisters.
Loyal like no breed of dog ever could be.
Oh, also. You don’t like flash or pomp.
You want normal and home and cozy times.
And mom’s cooking.
You are my age of Aquarius.
You really are a fighter.
That’s why you are Rocky.
You are cool.
Every second I get to be with you is a joy I can’t even express. (except when you are being a teenager)
HBDRVA!!!!! I love you, Rocky Valentine
