Mostly Wordless Wednesday: The Belle Of The Ball

His first birthday party invitation since the 4th grade
A real party, with a DJ and everything
He was so excited
And I was so grateful
When he arrived they shouted his name
All these friends of his
And the last I saw of him
He was enveloped in a hugging bunch of girls
Waving over his shoulder to me as they left
Not even bothering to look back
I thanked the girl and her parents
For remembering my son
And eyes were wet and hugs were tight
Because they have a son like mine
And they know, oh they know
Just how much that invitation meant
To all of us
