A thousand years ago


It seems to be 
A thousand years ago
That I had you on my lap
The birth of our first child

Those wakeful nights
We spent tending your needs
Thriving as the years passed by
My bouncing baby boy

Adventurous
Now digging and delving
Then choosing your own career
You were so one minded

We were amazed
The way you grew up so fast
Planting your feet so firmly
In your own brave new world

By breaking free
In serving your country
And living to tell the tale
A son to be proud of

  5. Our children are what we made them during those growing years. Sounds like you did a great job!

  6. It is such a satisfaction when one's own boy makes good. We had made them what we could and they managed to meet our aspirations. That's just a great feeling!

    things always thrive without our permissions.
