  • Before we knew you, we knew of you
    That you were on your way
    Part of me
    So much of us

    Entering this enterprise of
    artists and entrepreneurs,
    and soldiers and do-gooders,
    aunts and omas and cousins to come.

    Your first hellos:
    oh, Easter squeals
    Koala hugs
    and sweet Pharrell sing-alongs.

    Clap and hug,
    now dance and point.
    Ready Facetime shock and awe.
    Pack the Easter egg surprise, and
    cue the Uncle John jawdrop.

    All of it, while spring revealed
    a cheer squad just for you.
