A Mother's Pride

A Mother's Pride

A Poem by Debbie Barry

A new poem, about my sons.


My little boys

Have grown to men:

How did the time

Pass away so soon?


My little boys

Are children no more;

What does their future

Have in store?


My little boys

Will succeed;

We've given them

The tools they need.


My little boys,

All grown up now,

Grown tall, and older,



My mother's pride

Will never end,

Since my sons

Have become my friends.

Yeah, kids just don't stay kids for long these days.
But if you've shown them the way.
Then you can stand tall, and congratulate yourself on a job well done.
