Happy Birthday My Little One - A Poem for Mark

Updated on April 12, 2011

Happy Birthday My Son

Birthdays are special times of thanksgiving and fond memories. Mark, my little one, is so special and beautiful in his own way. He brings us cheer and happiness with his wonderful voice and lovely smile. This birthday as he turns ten, I remember with love, the times of fun we have together. His wit and humor keeps his class in splits, he is sorely missed when he does not attend school for even a day. The darling of his teachers' he knows how to twirl them around his little finger. We as parents never have our say, he is always the best to his teachers. He loves poetry and enjoys the poems that I write. He insisted that I write one for him on his birthday :)

Dear Mark, as you wished here is this little poem from mama to you...

Happy birthday, my little one
Today, you are all of ten,
My angel sweet, with dimples two,
Your smile, has my heart askew !

The songs you sing, all day long,
In that beautiful voice, so strong,
Has me wondering about,
The day you were born!

That struggle for your life we had,
Only you and I will know,
After three days, you my lad,
Came smiling happily home!

Your name I knew, before your birth,
I saw you in my dream,
My precious one, you are worth
It all, my little sunbeam!

Your tall tales and stories wild,
Enchant me my child,
But I’d rather keep my face straight,
Than be your easy bait!

I love the times when you sing to me,
Those operatic songs,
Though I can hardly keep the beat,
I have to fight conceit!

Mark, you are so precious,
In manner, so gracious,
You will always be my darling child,
So tender, sweet and mild!

I want you to know,
God’s love in you flows,
You are His precious gift to me,
And that is how you’ll always be!!

From Mama with love

      Sofs, I was browsing through your hubs today and saw that I am late in wishing both your kids on their birthdays. Happy belated Birthday, Kevin and Mark! But I believe - not a single day or minute is late enough to wish them a very wonderful, healthy and successful life all the way. May God's blessings be always showered on them!

      And, a great poet that you are, they must be really proud of you just as you are to have them as your kids. Wishing you and your family the very best in life! ...Uma:)

      Oh! Uma you are so kind, honestly it is a blessing to have such wonderful kids. They are the joy of my life and no sacrifice is too big. I am no poet, it is just solid emotion and love that flows through.. it is easy to let them form the words. Thank you so much for your love and good wishes. I consider myself blessed to have met you. Thank you and God bless! :)

      What a gorgeous child-no wonder he wraps everyone around his little finger! He is beautiful, Sofs, just like you.

      Lovely, endearing poem. Here we have evidence of a Mother's love for her child. Thanks for bringing this personal moment to share with us at the HP community.

      Voted up. The photos are adorable! Brought a smile to my face.

      Thank you Denise, Mark is indeed a wonderful child. He is more flashy and loves to dress up and be in the spotlight unlike my older son. He has a way with people and if I am not careful he will have me eating out of his hands.. :) Thank you for reading and commenting, he always asks after you and Mark( the clean life) he will be happy to hear what you have to say! :) Thanks and God Bless!

      Awww, that is so sweet! Hey, Sofs-maybe he will be an entertainer, especially if he loves to sing? Oh, oh...the next music idol?LOL

    • sofs profile image

      sofs 6 years ago

      Maybe with your blessings...He is now getting ready to sing in the Paul Wilbur concert ( a Gospel singer) He is visiting India in July and Mark auditioned for it and was selected and has been training for it seriously in the last few weeks. :) As long as he is happy doing what he does, it is good enough :) He is all puffed up when he read what you had to say :) Thanks Denise I guess you have made him happy :)

      Oh my gosh! Are you kidding me? That is wonderful! Tell him 'congratulations' for me. He must be just sparkling. I'm sure this will make a lasting impression on him. Good job mom-confidence.
