To My Son on His Birthday
Before your birth, we didn’t know
just which one you would be,
a little girl like your mother
or maybe, a little boy like me.
But as soon as you started to grow,
you became, like all little boys,
consumed with all the little boy things,
such as playing with all your favorite toys.
Then you grew to the point where
you discovered games you could play,
a passion that has carried you forward
to the very place where you are today.
Now to your mother and me,
you will always be our pride and joy,
and no matter how old you become,
you will always remain our little boy.
Now you are grown and on your own,
and as the time continues to fly,
our pride and love only increases,
as each and every day goes by.
