Pops, Popsy, it's here, hurray! Today, today-your birthday!
And we three, just want to say
that we all hope you are happy, happy on this day.
to celebrate with smiles and so much cheer
(for to us you are very dear).
But since we aren't, just a few lines
to say how dearly we do love you.
We don't say it enough, but it's oh-so-true.
We love your sense of humor.
We love your sage advice.
We love your serene ways.
We love your exclamations.
And all the quiet ways you show us you love us.
We love your generosity.
And your mustache.
We love all the quirky bits of you (like wearing the same brand/style of shoes for years on end.)
We love what a great son you are to all your parents-here and gone.
We love, in short, YOU.
Sending you hugs and kisses and love from all these miles away.
