Your Little Boy
by Theresa Lynn Gray

YOU FEEL THE JOY OF THE CHILD YOU CARRY.
GIVING THEM LIFE IS A LITTLE BIT SCARY,
BUT WHEN IT IS ALL SAID AND DONE
THAT LITTLE BUNDLE OF JOY WILL NOW BE "YOUR SON."

AS HE GROWS YOU WILL FEEL SUCH PRIDE,
HE COULD NEVER IMAGINE HOW YOU FEEL INSIDE.

HE WILL STARTLE AND STUN YOU FROM DAY TILL NIGHT
WITH AMAZING FEATS LIKE HIS FIRST FIGHT,
YOU'LL BANDAGE AND SOOTHE HIM WHILE TRYING TO HIDE
ALL THE HURT YOU ARE FEELING DEEP DOWN INSIDE.

YOU'VE TAUGHT HIM TO BE RESPECTFUL AND KIND,
AND TOLD HIM THAT SOMETIMES HE WOULD HAVE TO BE BLIND.
THE THINGS PEOPLE SAY AND SOMETIMES DO
CAN HURT SOMEONE DEEPLY TILL FOREVER THEIR BLUE.

MANY LESSONS HE'LL LEARN AS HE GROWS TO A MAN,
LIKE DON'T JUMP FROM THE FIRE TO THE FRYING PAN.
AS EACH DAY COMES AND EACH DAY GOES,
HE'LL LEARN A LOT MORE OF LIFE'S LITTLE WOES.

YOU'LL BE THERE TO HELP HIM NO MATTER THE NEED,
FOR YOU ARE HIS MOTHER AND HE IS YOUR SEED.
THE HURT YOU MAY FEEL WILL SOON SUBSIDE,
BUT UP UNTIL THEN DISAPPOINTMENT YOU'LL HIDE.

THERE WILL COME A DAY HE'LL STAND TALL AND PROUD,
A MAN IN HIS OWN, ANOTHER FACE IN THE CROWD.
BUT TO YOU HE WILL BE YOUR PRIDE AND YOUR JOY,
FOR ALWAYS HE'LL BE "YOUR LITTLE BOY."
