Ode to Bryan

Listen to this article

Hey there, Mama, look at me!

I’m a firefighter, can’t you see?

Saving lives — as brave as can be.

You’re gonna be so proud of me!

 

Hey there, Mama, look at me!

I’m an astronaut, can’t you see?

Discovering worlds in a far galaxy.

You’re gonna be so proud of me!

 

Hey there, Mama, look at me!

I’m a high-wire artist, can’t you see?

Making the crowd gasp: “Golly gee!”

You’re gonna be so proud of me!

 

Hey there, Mama, look at me!

I’m an angel, can’t you see?

A bearer of comfort – the best thing to be.

You’re gonna be so proud of me!

 

Now, now, Mama, don’t you cry.

It’s kinda neat way up in the sky.

Shed no tears – why, don’t even sigh.

You’ll be holding me again in the blink of an eye.

 

To my daughter Angie, whose 11-week-old son was murdered 18 months ago.
