He Gets That From Me!
You have your Grandmothers nose
that wrinkles when you smile
I stare at your picture's daily as I move above and below
I trace your face with fingertips
Starting with your brow, mine
Your eyes, big dark beautiful eye
Cheekbones that bespeaks your East Indian ancestry
My Mothers, Mother times two
Again mine a chuckle
My Fathers Mother Jewish descent
Do you know my darling Ryusei
The Maroon spirit of my Mother and Father generational
dances proudly within you
The warrior spirit of my Fathers, Father
The warring Irish with a bit of Scottish blood for interest
As you grow, remember dear heart
You are neither half nor part nor some
But a combination that makes you a whole
A beautifully sculpted masterpiece
This your Heritage
