For In The Name Of My Son

For In The Name Of My Son

A Poem by Joseph - Michael

For some strange reasons, I wrote this for my son, Jonathan Matthew, as a Christmas gift of 2007 for him when he was only 2 at that time. But he will read it when he get older.



Out Of All Of My Whole Entire Life

I've Never Really Believed In The Miracle At All

Not Even Half Close Enough To Believe In The Light


Until The Day You Were Born That Had Left Me Breathless


The First Look At You;

The First Smell Of You;

The First Sound From You;

The First Touch On You;


Everything About Your First Appearance Had Left Me Speechless


That Day You Were Born, You've Became My True Salvation

I've Never Knew That There Are So Much Joy

All From Just Only One Simple Little Boy

I Fell In Love After The Fact That You're Already My Son


Whenever You're Around, I've Become So Grateful

You've Given Me So Much Of The Pleasant

As You're My Natual Drug Of Anti-Depressant

The Fact Of Having You As My Son, I'm So Thankful


I Don't Know What I Would Do Without You

And I Wouldn't Dare To Think About It For A Moment

Only To Think And Remember About Our Times Together

And To Believe Of What's The Best For You

I Was Never Taught How To Be Your Father


Except For You


You've Taught Me How To Be Your Father

As Much As I'm Teaching You To Be My Son

I Always Will Be Your Best Friend


Yes, I May Be Your Father;

Yet, I Always Will Be Your Teacher


Yes, I May Be Your Mentor;

Yet, I Always Will Be Your Protector


I Was Once Nobody's Gladiator, But Now I'm Your Protector

I Always Will Be There For You All The Way To The End


Only Just For Your Life;

Only Just For Your Love;

Only Just For Your Legacy;


Altogether In Order To Build Up Your Own Personal Legend


I'll Always Will Be Your Own Personal Gargoyle;

The Perfect Type Of The Kind To Be Your Guardian

And There's Nothing In This World Will Take Us Apart

And Nothing Will Stop The True Beatings Of Our Hearts


At Any Costs; At All Costs; No Matter What;

My Ultimate Sacrifice Is For Your Salvation


That's My Promise Toward You

Not Just Because I'm Your Father,

Only Because I Love You Within All Of My Heart And Soul

touchy, so deeply really did pour your heart out my friend and it's really nice to see a father's love testimony to his son. the flow is'nt too smooth(just an unecessary observation :-) ) but the lines add up to a master piece. it has this energy radiating from it that makes one want to go out, call his child,hug him/her and say "i love you"

The honest emotion and sincerity flow across the page Joseph Michael. When your son is able to read this, he will know how you truly feel about him. A father's love is so very important.. it lifts the heart to see that you truly love him so... and that you are strong enough to let it show. :)

A wonderful bonding piece between father and son!

Now, this is the deepest poem you have! ...I'm surprised I haven't gotten to it earlier. :P

Anyways, this is definitely a touching poem. I'm sure a lot of parents on this site who have read this understand completely the joy and love you feel towards your child. :) This is an amazing poem with amazing feelings. ^^ Thank you for sharing this one; I'm sure it is very personal.

Ironically Yours.

Children, tiny little precious babies can make us into such powerful creatures. I was the youngest in my family. I had no clue how to be a Mother (no clue how to interact with children), but my daughter (my eldest, she's 5 now) taught me how. I watched her and nurtured her. She'd smile at me, call for me. How can one not know how to parent when they have such perfect little teachers? The love for you son is evident. It's a beautiful thing and warms me to my toes. What a wonderful gift to give to your son when he's older so he can see just how much his Pappa loves him and changed him.

I'm no one special. I'm just a single father in the MMA training to kill the anger and the personal pain in order to move on. Whenever I'm not busy, even with the damn procrastination issue, I try my .. more..
