My Boys

A Poem by Vidya Bacchus
"

Just some thoughts

"
                                                My Boys

I just wanted to say to my boys,
I may not always be here,
To yell at you and make you see reason,
So I wanted to say to you,
Treat women with as much love and respect,
As you would me.

Don't be a follower be a leader,
Always be kind and look out for your sister,
Like your uncles look out for me,
Be mindful of your father,
And look to him to see who and what a man is.
Because he is the best example.

I have to be honest some days I want to return you guys,
But no one would take you and I would miss you,
Even if you drive me up a wall more often than not,
Life is short and it goes by fast,
Before you know it you'll be men,
But be the best men you can be.

Think before you act,
Even if I don't we've established I'm looney,
Because every decision has consequences,
And you'll have to deal with them,
That's all I got for now,
Know I love you and I get it now "boys will be boys"

Your thoughts are spoken from the heart of a mother who dearly loves her boys - in the good times and the bad, and that is a GOOD mother!!
Yes, "boys will be boys"!

Thank you Lady Sheila your words always make me smile :)
So much wonderful advice you have left your boys… and when you are gone you will live on through the actions of your kids… everyday I try to be the man my mom wanted me to be so that she can live on through me.

Another loving and deeply sensitive personal letter to boys who are clearly loved. It is a letter many parents would wish to have written.
