In pride I am compelled to descibe a boy I have in mind. Decide and pray tell Me if I'm in possesion of a rare find. It's something I wasn't prepared for with my hard knock education. So I suppose it's to my son I make this dedication. 'I Love you dad' 'I Love you' Morning, noon and night. 'I Love you dad' 'I Love you' on the phone when out of sight. How did he know the recipe for alleviating strife? Where did he get the secret for adding years to life? Regardless of the presence of his adolescent peers. 'I Love you dad' in public and I'm almost brought to tears.

"out of the mouths of babes" ... no matter what the age a tender, touching write Richard.
As I read this something occured to me... we as poets, and we as humans focus so much on unconditional love...we write poem after poem about our quest to possess it from a lover, we spend our life searching for it... and yet...its something our children give us without question. We need more poems like this
No one should ever get to old to say I love you to those we love, and it is good he had this upbringing to always carry this and show his feelings. Great poem and pssst...a great kid too, whose got a wonderful Dad!
Reel beauty is only fin deep!
This one hits deep. My son just turned 16 two days ago. It's amazing how they can come to you on their own and make you Ten feet tall with those 3 little words. It all adds up to joy doesn't it. I love this very much. Sincerely, Regina
