Tori Mae’s First Birthday

Tori Mae’s First Birthday

A Poem by J Todd Underhill
"

Just some thoughts this morning

"

Your entrance could only be dramatic,

That sunny day in the middle of May.

Making your grandma and I ecstatic,

All while making our hair grow much more gray.

 

Micro-Preemie with nothing but high hopes;

And a wink to show that you are alright.

While gallantly changing your horoscopes;

Ready too soon to set this world alight.

 

NICU’s little rock star extraordinaire,

Exceeding the doctor’s expectations.

Giving your parents an occasional scare,

But overcoming all complications.

 

Miss Tori Mae is one year old today,

And still owning it all in her own way!

Couldn't have been more thrilled to read anything as sweet as a pap's heartfelt words about his Tori Mae! No words could explain what the NICU holds in reality...unless it has been experienced...this poem gives light to all the hopes and love that lives there and encourages parents and grands in the care of their precious children..It has been such a beautiful and satisfying year's journey with you Todd and with your Tori Mae! may her futue continue to brighten life for your family...Love the poem...you must keep a copy to present her when she gets older...she is SO beautiful, so filled with your family's love....
