Billings, MT USA
This morning, I awoke and cradled you in my arms.
I held you, my soft, sweet, bundle of joy.
I was mesmorized by your innocent charms.
My precious, precious baby boy.
This afternoon, you tied your shoes...completely by yourself!
Son, I was so proud of you.
I took a picture and placed it on the shelf,
as I have always have with each new thing you do.
This evening, you stood up to graduate
and I cried softly, all tears of pride.
Though maybe you've grown, it's not too late
to keep calling you "my baby" deep inside.
Tonight, before I fall asleep,
You will make this One your wife.
You will continue building this families' keep.
Thank You, Son, for giving me this happy, full-filled life.
"She looked at her life
like lines, never-ending,
reforming and bending."
