Ryan (a triplet)

The greatest thing in the world
is the gift of life;
the greatest person I know
is my loving wife.

She wanted children
and she gave birth to three;
A for Lindsay, B for Scott
Ryan was “C”.

The babies were healthy
with all their fingers and toes;
but what lay ahead, no one would know.
Five days after their birth
before they even started crying
Lindsay and Scott lost their brother
whom we had named Ryan.
