The First Only Child - Poem by Kim Barney
He's the first only child
That I have ever known.
We didn't even meet
Until we were both grown.
Just because he has no siblings,
He really shouldn't whine.
If he wants one, then just for fun
I'll give him one of mine!
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Recife, Pernambuco, Brasil
saved for his birthday 30 August 2015
I can't really give him one of my siblings;
I love them all too much to give one away.
However, Ron, you have become like a brother to me,
so I guess you're not an only child anymore.
Happy Birthday, Buddy!
