To My Son

 

One day out of the blue
You came to me like something new
You entered my life with such a flash
I knew you were here for ever last

When you were born I shed a tear
Out of joy I heard you cry in so much fear
You were given to me when I planted my seed
To watch you grow and love you is all I need

I am here for you to take your hand
To walk with you through this land
Teaching you the ways so that you understand
Watching you sleep is oh so grand

Dreaming of the days when you are tall
Catching and throwing the ball
Picking you up each time you fall
Keeping you oh so safe when you’re so small

The days will come and the days will go
Soon before I know it you will grow
Today you are so new tomorrow you will be two
Soon you will say to me look Dad I can tie my shoe

I fear the day when you walk out the door
To start a life for ever more
Today your are one
But tomorrow you are twenty one

The life cycle will start over again
With this you introduce me to Jane
She is the new love of your life
Soon you will take her to be your wife

The day will come when you shed a tear
And tell me Dad you have nothing to fear
Today the new life has begun
Through my life you have a new grand son
