My Son

My Son

A Poem by A.Lee

My Son


You didn’t grow inside of me

I wasn’t there when you were born

But my heart has attached itself to yours

And my love for you has been sworn


I’ve watched you grow from baby to boy

Falling more in love every day

Those big and beautiful, golden eyes

Easily getting your way


You may not have my lips or nose

You may not have my smile

But I see you watch me all the day

Absorbing my quirks all the while


I love you no matter what you do

No matter where you choose to go

You walked right in and captured my heart

Just how much you’ll never know


People may say that we’re not the same

Our kinship has been said and done

But you called me ‘Mommy’ of your own accord

And you’ll always be my son


~for Seth~

My son was robbed on Xmas day. He called me first to tell me. He was in despair and needed ther love he knew was there in my voice as he told me what had happened. There is a special bond between a mother and child that can never be broken.

'But you called me ‘Mommy’ of your own accord
And you’ll always be my son'

Those lines are beyond powerful, this is very moving.

. husband raised my daughter from a toddler and she's 21..people say she's more like him than me and even think they are the spitting image of each other..a mothers love is a special bond regardless of blood..thats immaterial. Seth is a lucky little boy and beautiful to boot!

This is such pure and wide love, it brought tears to my eyes.
Just as you are lucky to have him, lucky is your son to have you as a mother. You'll give him this text someday right ? :)

Dear Seth, your mother like all mothers is a sweet heart. It doesn't matter if she gave birth to you. All that will ever matter is the fact that she loves you and wants you to become the best person you can be. Keep loving her for you are the joy of her life as this write clearly shows. (PS. you're really cute. You remind me of my younger brother ) :D
♥ and best wishes in life

I am lots of things, but here you'd identify most with the writer and avid reader. I have three beautiful children. The oldest boy, Seth, passed last year after fighting a long battle with cancer. .. more..
