My life has never seemed to matter that much
In the grand scheme of things.
Too much time spent chasing memories,
Too few happy songs to sing.
I suppose I started out promisingly,
A young, bright, motivated child.
And as they inevitably do, bad things happened,
And life went a little wild.
But throughout all the bad, I was learning,
And preparing for what I could become.
Never giving up hope for the future,
Never forgetting where I came from.
And then came you, a beacon of hope,
My perfect little knight.
Fighting battles you never knew existed,
In the darkness, being my light.
You’ve given my life a meaning
That I never knew could exist.
You’re a wonder, a creation of love and life,
A miracle I almost missed.
Every moment with you is a blessing.
Every smile, a work of art.
I love you more than words could ever express.
You hold the key to my heart.
All the time I was searching for more,
You have always been the one.
My love, my life, my hope for the world…
Devlin, my darling, my son.
