Alex Both 18 and 5

October 1, 2015

You were born twice already,

Lived two lives,

Separated by so thin a line.


Both different and grand,

Golden and sincere,

Pure and kind,


With maturity of an adult,

The compassion of a child,

And the smile of those with the biggest hearts


You have lived an inspiring 18 years,

And spread your spirit for 5,

No one is happier than I to have you in their life


We do not worry as you go off into a dark world,

As we realize that you will make it so very bright.
