MY SON


When he was born I looked at him and thought:
What a precious little one.
I looked at him again and said: Is this
My son?

When he was three I looked at him and thought:
His troubles have just begun.
Look at him pucker his baby lips. How can I say:
No, son!

When he was five he started to school
His strong little legs in a run.
I saw him stumble and bump his nose. I cried:
O, son!

When he was seventeen he finished high school
With the highest of honors won.
I looked at him and proudly said: This is
My son!

O, world of turmoil
With your race for the young to run,
I beg you: Please be careful what you do with
MY SON!

  13. The last part really got to me. My son is somewhat older than your son but you and I have that in common: we love our sons and want the best for them. This is a wonderful photo of you and your son. I know you cherish it.

  14. Glad for you to visit me, Margie--I put you into my sidebar "favorites" also.

    Anyone who ends their "about me" with: "I take nothing for granted. I treasure everything!"...well, I want to keep on reading that kind of attitude. I call it ENTHUSIASM!

    PEACE!
