Seventeen and still your child
you loved to watch me play
and though it but a fantasy
I like it just that way
With Christmas comes your memories
of little lit up eyes
each present brought your held back smile
you treasured my surprise
but time is most itself when passing
Christmas mornings not the same
I know you wish of days forgotten
back when life was just a game
you pester me to make a list
you wish Id ask for simple toys
but age and tastes have changed since then
no longer Iím a little boy
CDís, and clothes, you humor me
sometimes you sneak a GI Joe
we have a laugh, share a smile
I know what your wishing though
its good to hold on to your past
memories can bring us joy
but know that gifts are simply gifts
and ill always be your little boy.

Very true! And no matter how old you get you'll still be her little boy! Very nice sentiments, Kevin.

this is about my mother but no time in the poem does it specify a gender,
isnt it interesting that you could easily tell that without sex specification?

Yep, you're right, Kevin, you didn't mention a gender. As Marge said Moms are just like that yeah, we are and we can spot ourselves a million miles away! And of course there was that little clue about all that Christmas shopping! I don't know about anyone else here, but out of all my family and all my friends and all my co-workers and all my acquaintenances (in a two-parent household, I mean) It's the moms who do ALL the shopping for everybody in the family and Dad does the shopping for Mom! (hehehehehehe)
And then of course in the single parent homes the shopping and everything else falls on the single parent (not easy, I was there for a bit) Again, Kevin, Very nice poem!
