The first time that I saw your face,

I couldn’t believe my eyes.

I held you and kissed your tiny head,

Sweet baby boy of mine.

When you were just a little boy

And afraid of things at night,

I hugged you and I prayed for you

That you would be alright.

When you felt bad for something you’d done,

I listened and and hugged you tight,

Saying a forgiveness prayer,

And God made it all alright.

Your teen years seemed to go so fast,

And still I hugged you tight,

But this time looked up in your eyes,

A young man about to fly.

I sense you’re not quite ready for this thing that they call “fly”,

And though I’d never let you know, it’s true…. neither am I.
