My Son


My son, I can see so many good things in you
And here I am really honest and true.
My son, I love it when your caring heart opens wide
When I had a headache you came and sat by my side

My son, some of your talents for drawing, I have seen
You are really good at it, believe me, fantastic, I mean
My son, there are really so many good things in you.
Even so far, I have mentioned just two

My son, you have a talent for language, you do
Yes learning a language is easy for you
My son, Here’s number three, there is so much more
So much more in you, I truly adore

My son, I do understand that being 14 is quite challenging
There are so many things changing
But please my very lovely son,
Keep on bringing out the good that’s in you, please keep on.

Your loving father, Papa

    It is so important for a child to have parents who understand them in these changing times where one cannot trust any one... and especially the child needs dad(according to me) ... I love the way you understand him.. appreciate him... he is a lucky boy, indeed Papa's boy... I wish all the parents here read this and understand how important it is to to think about the child in this manner.. Thank you Sir, thank you very much! ! (Report) Reply

    There is nothing sweeter and more pure than one's love for one's children. This is truly heartfelt and sincere......I love the honesty of feeling behind it, and isn't that what poetry is all about after all.....you have mastered that! I have several poems on my page about my daughters and they are among my favorites for that very reason....I feel I am at my most sincere and open when I write about them. (Report) Reply

    This is a wonderful poem! It shows the struggle of a parent to keep a child on the surface. The challenges of changes are tough not only for kids but also for the parents. Hard to see their battle and not intervene..Wonderful poem thank you for share.26144 (Report) Reply
