To Robbie: My Youngest Son

Updated on July 15, 2011

I remember when your were little and how you use to dance.

And smile at me with every glance.

Your would say, "Mommy! Look!" and roll around on the floor.

Those are the moments that I miss and adore.

You use to draw me pictures while you sang your happy song.

In my memory those moments will always belong.

I remember your first day of school.

How you just went in like a big boy and I cried like a fool.

I remember when you said, "Girls are Icky!" as you went outside to play.

How I wish I could go back to that day.

Now your 16 and taller than me.

But when I look at you all I can see.

Is my little boy holding my hand and saying, "I love you too mommy."

      Thank you Spirit Whisperer. Your are so right, they grow up so fast. Once day you are changing their diapers and now you are giving them the keys to your car. I am sure that you have been and are a great father. All we can do is our best. The seed has already been sewn. Now we are watching them grow. They will always be our babies no matter how big or old they get :)

      This poem touched my heart because I have a 16 year old son and though we are very close and have had our moments I keep seeing the little boy and I hope I have been a good father and done the very best for him always. Time will tell. I also have three daughters I feel the same about. They grow up too fast but I still hold their little hands in my heart. Voted up.

      Thank you Honorablewoman. I really loved your Hub. You are a great writer and wonderful mother. It is challenging to see your babies grow up. However, at the end they will make us very proud. God Bless You.

      This poem represents the Heart of a Mommy. I have a 16 year old and I too am trying to adjust, that he is growing up and before I know it will be headed to college. Please read my Hub titled "Mother's Day Joy". It was dedicated to my children. God bless you and your family.
