The day you were born, that golden rabbit ran in front of our car
while we entered the hospital parking lot, I smiled and said,
“Oh would you look at that…it must be a sign.”
My husband laughed as I said it sincerely.
our excitement grew fierce as the wait began.
it is my greatest blessing to have welcomed you into our lives.
My dearest Riley, born; 5lbs. 12oz
a perfect, healthy, lil’ guy, with perfect golden hair and perfect golden skin,
you are my honey bear.
that first moment your grandpa laid eyes on you, a beautiful smile hung over his face.
he reached for you and held you tight, than he noticed one thing i’ll never forget.
I’ll cherish forever this symbol revealed.
A sign from the rabbit, that I had caught.
He looked up at me and said “here’s my golden boy.”
and from that day forward that name stuck.
I will hold this sentiment fondly.
For the loss of he, has been great for me.
because of your grandpa; to me will you will always be the “Golden Boy”
