A Son
by d k rhea

Many years ago a doctor decribed.
"It's a boy", he said and then came the cry.
The tears began to flow for the day had come.
The wait seemed so long.
I had a son.

As the years went by.
I held you in my arms.
I cherished each day.
I kept you from harm.
You grow older 
and more independent each day.

It worries me some, 
you're growing away.
One day while talking, 
I turned to see.
A young man stood there, 
you grew up on me.

The day is coming.
I feel it in my heart.
The world is calling you.
To take your part.
The tears begin to flow.
For the day has come.
Another mother is born.
She'll have a son.
