absence makes the heart grow fonder
"The joy of meeting pays the pangs of absence; else who could bear it?" - Nicholas Rowe
I wish I was there for your first birthday. I wish I was there so I could watch you grow up. I wish I was there so I could shower you in gifts, hugs and kisses. I wish I could be there to just take care of you, to babysit you. I wish I could be there to teach you how to treat a young lady, how to dress and how to win the hearts of all the girls in the world. You're so big now but you will always be my cute little, Santino. Your smile was beautiful before but now more than ever, now that your teeth has grown in.
I miss you.
The greatest gift anyone could give me would be to see you again.
