For the first time my father called me "son"
The very word I ever longed to hear
Though I in lie this very word did shun
For never did it reach my coarse and youngish ear.

How strange did it sound from old and wrinkled jaw
One word, "son', to I his second born.
His ever present absence was his only flaw
But all was forgiven when I was reborn.

Your son I am, and evermore will be.
As you did for me, I'll tend to your needs
And eternally relate to your posterity
Your chivalrous acts and your gallant deeds.

How happy am I, though I'm not the only one,
That, out of many, you chose to call me Son.

As I know you, I know how very much it meant to hear that one word. So much in fact, that I'm sure this poem merely scrapes upon the surface of the emotions you felt then and still feel now.

Wonderfully written, sug.

Those who have not been there will not appreciate the impact of this poem. I am still there (though not a son) and would dearly love to know that my mother has some feelings for me! Good one dear!

Ali, you never fail to come up with something new for us - It's alway a joy to open your poems because I never know what to expect - I only know that I can be sure I'll like it...
