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~

One of the simplest, yet most drop-dead gorgeous love-letters I have ever read! I wish all of us could be blessed with such grace, so full of unconditional love, n' imbued with such magic in our lives! ㋡

This is so beautiful, tender and loving. A mother is someone who is loving, caring and who is there no matter what. Excellent writing here.

Very touching how you are speaking to your son. Makes you think of how many biological kids aren't wanted!

There is a lot more to being a parent than being a natural mother or father. At least adopted children are wanted and planned for. You earn the right to be called Mommy by being Mommy

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..
