I remember the frst time I ever met Max,
A baby with curls of red hair.
He seemed very small then, and when he was sleeping
You hardly could tell he was there.

Then as the years passed, he got a bit bigger,
Husky, just like his dad.
He walked with authority, clearly a strong boy,
Starting to look like a lad.

Someday he’ll grow up, then start his own life,
Set to go out in the land.
But I’ll still remember when Max was much smaller,
Even though he’ll be a man.

The next time I saw Max, he wasn’t too old then,
Starting to run and to climb.
He’d jump on his scooter and speed down the sidewalk
With Mon and Dad running behind


Last week he came visiting; they flew in from Denver.
Now he’s the oldest of three.
His sister’s protector and young Will’s big brother.
At six he’s much bigger, I see.
