FIREWORKS IN MY HEART
It is early here
and I can already hear the people cheer
The sun is not yet setting
the fireworks will soon start... I am betting
tonight I will not go out
I will stay in and think about my day... what it was about
I had a splendid day
my heart was brightened in a special way
by the many people I shared the day with
I worked and had no time to sit
as I worked... the people around me were so glad
not one face was sad
as I worked I heard the people cheer
the joy was so near
and then it was not the same
it was coming to the end of the game
the game was tied at four- four
my heart was sinking to the floor
it was up to my son
to get the winning run
I saw him at the bat
my husband said "look"
but I could not do that
I knew how much he wanted to win
I closed my eyes... and put my face in my chin
I was thinking of the poem "Casey at the bat" .. . Casey struck out
"don't do that... don't do that"...I wanted to shout
and then it happened... for my son
he won the game... with his homerun!!!!
This was a very special day for me.
I am so proud of my son... and so happy!
My son has been in a slump for a while now.
This made his day.
I had the best fireworks today...the joy of seeing my son happy!
FIREWORKS IN MY HEART!!!
(Oh, I was working in the concession stand)
And.... that is my son in this picture with me...
not exactly baseball attire.... more like prom attire.
He is my hero though!
