About the Poem

A Birthday promise to my 8 year old on his birthday. Letting him know what a great young man he's became and one that hell become. And how no matter what he can always come home.

A Few Visitor Comments

I know the feeling of watching them grow so fast! this was a good poem. It made me think of my own boys.

Forever My Son

My, My what a big boy you've become,
Seems not too long ago, you had just turned one.
Yet, today is your Birthday, sign of another year past.
It's hard to believe you're already 8, and still growing up so fast.
Before you know it, it'll be girls and a car,
Then off to college, or perhaps you'll be the next Big Movie Star.
No matter where your Fate shall take you, or your Adventures should roam,
Never mind the reason you're always Welcome to come home.
For now it's bikes, bugs, or maybe your favorite play toy,
Nevertheless, you'll always be my "Little Boy"
Forever, My Son.
