Happy birthday to my lil nephew Nathan
You melt my cold heart like only a babe can
I can’t believe you’ve already been here three long years
Seems like yesterday we were posing in matching shirts
Now you hold mature conversations with big words like Octagon!
Picking things up quick, drawing on your etch a sketch, wipe it quick And it’s gone!
Your mommy Efua does a great job, we know that’s all true
But it takes a smart kid to absorb it and that’s all you.
And we could say you get your looks from daddy, Jude who’s handsome
But let’s not lie, you’re a whole lot cuter, and then some!
Being the terrible uncle I am I don’t get to see you as often as I ought to.
But this snowstorm couldn’t stop me seeing you on your birthday, I’m glad I got to
I’m gonna try to do better even if I’m having the worst day
To see you as many more times as possible before your next Happy Birthday!
