A Song That I Wrote To My Son 15 Years Ago

To my unborn son

whose coming soon,

I lift up my guitar

and write this tune,

there're things I want to say

before you come into this world,

about a love I've known

from a very special girl.


And you will meet her too

when your times due,

she'll kiss and cuddle you

the whole night through

you will be our pride and joy

forever more it's true,

and no one in the

whole wide world

will love you like we do...


Two who were as one,

will now add one to

make them three,

when you are our son,

making us a family,

beneath your mother's heart

you started as a tiny seed,

it was planted there by God,

to fulfill your parents need.


Just think of all the

fun things we will do,

cause everything in

your life will be new,

we'll share our favorite

games with you

like playing Peek-A-Boo,

once you get to know us a while

while we get to know you.


Your mama teaches

English every week,

and she will guide you

as you learn to speak,

and your daddy is an artist

shaping beauty out of clay,

you'll be his inspiration

while he's working everyday.


Two who were as one,

will add one to

make them three,

when you are our son

adding to our family tree,

as the years go by

we will raise you

like we should

so that as you

become a man

you will grow up

strong and good.


Though troubles in

this world abound we know,

we'll shelter you from

problems as you grow,

we'll hold you close

when you feel pain

and kiss away your tears,

and give you all

the love we have

as we go through the years.


Two who were as one,

will now add one

to make them three,

when you are our son,

in a happy family,

beneath your mothers heart

you now add a special beat

and as your father....son

I can't wait until we meet.


Yes...to my unborn son

whose coming soon,

I lift up my guitar

and write this tune,

there's so much more

I want to say,

but it will take a while,

till I can sit and talk with you

and share a special smile.


Your mamas waiting

patiently to see

your giggles as you

bounce upon her knee

you will be our pride and joy

forevermore it's true

and "NO ONE" in

the whole wide world

will love you like we do.

That was beautiful. I'm going to be honest, it made me tear up a couple of times. I wrote a poem for my niece before she was born as well. This was very beautiful...again. :)

What a wonderful poem for your son and he is a great looking kid. I really enjoyed this poem. I bet its nice for him that his dad can express himself so well and it shines through in your poetry. Cheers.
