Journey of a Child

From the first
movement
heartbeat heard
mine own
swelled
threatened to burst
love felt
forever
always
my boy.
I watched your first steps.
I heard your first words.
I watched as you learned to ride a bike.
I heard as you learned to read.
I held you in the night against monsters.
Your mind delights me
your heart astounds me
your kindness
your desire to help
all the things I want you to bear forth
the shield to be held in manhood.
We are entering yet another branch
another era in your life
where independence
choices made now
ripple with consequences
turning you into the man you will become.
At every point
I will be there
with a loving heart
and a hug
waiting for you to come home
to me
once more.
