My Son


My son is a prince

He speaks a language of care, consideration, and confidence

He stands up for what he believes

He reacts to life as it is given to him

He brings this joy that is unable to be controlled

He cares for living things

He speaks to broaden my cynicism

I enjoy the world through his eyes

He knows how to protect and give back

He grows…so softly

He makes…quiet noises

He laughs…so good

He is mine

My son is a prince

He is my gift of greatness

That life has allowed me to touch
