Josh's poem to his babies (Jeschelle, Laila, and Oliver)
If it should rain on your big day, sweet pea
please keep on smilin', cuz if you get a lil' wet that's just your daddy cryin'.
Babybird if the wind makes travel hard
Please keep on tryin'
Daddy's chin is in his hands admiring and a sighin',
Sonny Bunny please don't forget your daddy's face, it will stop that sun from shinin',
and we'll need it on the day we meet up past that silver lining.
Where the clouds break
I love u kids...Daddy, Dada, Dad!
Joshua Isaac Greensky
