Words don’t come easy
to those with a tender heart.
A subtle sensibility
of the potential that can lurk
in the human form.
Prudent, circumspect of others,
shying away from contact
until sure of yourself.
No, not yourself.
You seek the security of kindred spirits.
Allowing yourself to bond with all those
who will lift and guide your cautious soul
through the adventure of life.
Trust in them.
Trust in yourself.

And what an adventure it will be!
Such hope-
Remember all things are not possible for anyone,
But you are budding within the realm of
Your own possibilities-
And they are many!
You, who have captured the paradox
Of caution mixed with peril.
You throw it all to the wind!
You take risks with all but the human heart.
Wise beyond your years-
The world is yours.


You inspire me! Thanks!

    Seeking the security of kindred spirits? PERFECT. I think this line is my favorite: “You take risks with all but the human heart.” but I love LOVE love them all so much.
    Seriously, thank you. That you were inspired by my little boy to write this is the bestest gift in all of the worlds. ❤

  4. […] 2. Tucker the Ninee Ladie’s kid turned five! FIVE PEOPLE! FIVE! AMAZING BOY! For some reason this kid just speaks to me. Funny I’ve never spoken to him, and I hear he is a man of few words, but still… I just love his adventuresome nature. He has a future in professional stunt work, airline piloting, heavy equiptment operation, bungee cord tester… I dunno but he seems to love fun!   Thanks, Tucker! […]

    Always look at the world through the eyes of a five year old. Very touching birthday tribute. I could see the adventures of Tucker as an awesome children’s book.
