Description: Dedicated to my loving son, who's always ready to lend a helping hand.
Watching the nurse bring you in to me
Tears flowing freely from my eyes
I was as happy as could be
For you were such a great surprise
Your happy face won my heart
As you looked at me and smiled
My heart felt swelted, about a mile
Then a little child running around
Making all kinds of joyful sounds
Playing with all kinds of toys
Here was Moms little boy
Growing up staying just as sweet
To each and everyone you meet
When you see someone in need
Always ready to do a good deed
Every time I look at you
I still feel proud of all you do
Now, you have grown to be a man
Still helping everyone you can
Your sweet spirit shines out true
For anyone that's feeling blue
Son, I just want you to know how I feel
My pride, joy and love for you is real
I love you so and I just wanted you to know
This is a beautiful poem for your son and I also think he would like to read it as well there is nothing like the love of a mother for her children as I am a mother and a grand mother and I find this to be a very loving and touching piece of work so glad that I read this one you are a wonderful poet . I am adding this one to my favs
This one I hadn't read yet. Shame on me for not seeing this one. Wow, ode to your son. I have told a dozen times before that these kind or poems are my weakness. This from a mother to her son. A journey from birth to manhood and all the little memories in between that only a mother can explain. I think I will call my mom today and tell her how much I love her. Thank you Linda for remimding a son why mothers cry.
This is sooo sweet! It made me think of my son, who is now 22 and how much I miss him. We live 180 miles apart and I don't get a chance to see him as much as I would like to. From reading some of your writings, I get the feeling that you have a special bond between you and your children. You are very fortunate! I really enjoyed reading this and I am going to add it to my favorites so I can come back and read it again. DJ
absolutely beautiful. i imagine that it is something i would have written if my daughter had been born. but instead i had to write about the things i could never share with her. if you want you can check them out they are called taken too soon and my little girl. but back to your peice i thought it was very thought provoking and full of emotion that only a mother can have for her child. i am sure that your son feels the same way for you as well. great work...Joy
A son's love for his mother remains in his heart forever - irrespective of circumstances. I have no doubt that he feels exactly the same way as you feel about him. A lovely endearing and thought provoking write.
Ah yes, the joy of motherhood. I'm sure my wife feels these same sentiments. You have captured the mother / son relationship admirably. To have one that grows and fills your heart with pride is a treasure. This is a beautiful piece and your love shines through it. The reader can sense the feelings of love and pride as they read this. I think it is a good thing that you have written this, to let him know of your love and pride. This becomes a tribute to him, but also to you, the mother who raised him. Nicely done!
O how deep and unselfish the love of a mother for her child. The love you have comes through beautifully in this piece. I thought you followed a very methodical pattern and ended it very well. Your rhyme scheme changes after the fourth line and you might have wanted to put a space after that stanza. You could think about cutting down on the wordage a bit, as an example the last line might read better this way:
I love you so and just wanted you to know.
It is a very touching poem and any son would be proud to have such a loving mother. Dan
This is how I felt too the day my son was born, it's just too bad I didn't ever get a chance to watch him grow up; he got adopted at birth. :( Both of my kids got adopted by different families but I at least get pictures of my daughter and little notes from her adoptive mom... my sons adoptive mom isn't so nice!
Linda This is really beautiful Your son is so blessed to have you in his life You have such a kind heart and a very gifted mind I can only hope my Mother feels the same way you do about your son about me Deep down I know she does God Bless Ron
