A Very Happy Birthday…

…to my baby brother, Kevin Bissett II!

This guy has been a constant in my life since the day he was born.  He’s sweet, funny, creative, and pretty much all-around incredible.  Please stop by his blog to leave him a quick “Happy Birthday,” and check out his poetry while you’re there!

This poem was written for Kevin, and is included in our book of poetry, Contemplations.

Brother
Leigh Michaels

I was certain
one hundred percent
that God was giving me
pink and lace
baby dolls
porcelain tea parties
ballet
tap dancing
gymnastics:
someone
who would someday be
one of my best friends.

Instead He gave me
bouncing blue
bugs and dirt
baseball and soccer
and basketball
trains and trucks
cowboy hats and boots and guns
camouflage
video games:
someone
who would someday be
one of my best friends.
