happy birthday

My dearest little two-headed boy,

I love you, little two-headed boy.
Little two-headed boy, I love you.
Yes I do.

And one day
the little two-headed boy will die
and his ashes will fly
from the aeroplane over the sea.
And when we meet on a cloud,
he’ll be laughing out loud.
He’ll be laughing with everyone he sees.
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all.

Sweet little two-headed boy,
put on your Sunday shoes
and dance around the room.
I love you.
Baby carrot flower, happy tenth birthday.
