According to an online dictionary, the newer slang term ‘Bae,’ used by many as a term of endearment,
is a short form of ‘Babe.’
It’s also an acronym for ‘Before anyone else.’
Before Anyone Else.
That’s my boyfriend above.
My husband of twenty-seven years.
The father of our children,
and grandfather of our grandchildren.
The man who supports me in all I do, watches over our family and protects my dreams.
He’s my Bae.
And it’s his birthday.
Happy Birthday, Handsome.
