Father and Son
*****************

"Da da...?"

His eyes light up
at the sound of your voice
his grin widens
at the sight of your smile

with arms outstretched
he toddles toward you
you are his hero
the one he looks up to

your son adores you
he idolizes you
he will always need you
your son loves you

his love is unconditional
through every up and down
when you have a bad day
his laugh can turn it around

I smile as I watch you two
play baby games all day
he may not remember these early days
"but that's okay," you say

"I love my son more than life itself;
I'll love him 'til he's 110.
I'll be with him forever, and along the way,
we can make new memories then."

His eyes light up
his grin widens
he leans into your open arms
and breathes a contented sigh:

"Da da."

Awwwww... How sweet   well done. Children can be so magical, can't they?

There is no poem I like better than those that can take me back to the day`s when my kid`s were babies.
The memories last a life time but sometime`s we get so caught up in the race that they slip away for a moment.
Thank you for taking me back for a moment in time.
Nice job
