I see fireworks
In the distance
Explosions of joy
But not for this big boy

Another significant day
In other people’s ways

Red burst
Into the sky
Just looks like
A drop of blood
From a crying eye

I see more fireworks
Yellow this time
Sparkling bright
Little suns in the night
But no sons have I

Cover the sun
Delete the joy
For this big boy
Was a small boy
Full of sunshine
In another time
