A Poem for my Son

Tonight a son was born

Together we’ve entered a point of no return.

So small and fragile, yet so strong,

Growing up it won’t take long.

A piece of me he will always be

For he holds my hearts’ key.

You have my eyes and daddy's nose

That brown head of fuzz that never seems to grow.

Your peaceful smile,

We'll snuggle for just a while.

A piece of me you'll always be

A beautiful mix of daddy and me.

Watching you grow up so fast

Like the changing of leaves in summer’s past.

Rolling over and growing teeth

Soon he’ll be hanging the Christmas wreath.

A piece of me he will always be

My beautiful little sweet pea.

My perfect precious gift

A beautiful good night kiss

These days will never be forgotten

Though your bright future is already on the horizon.

A piece of me you’ll always be,

Forever and eternity.
