'Proud Father'


My son, at your birth
You posed like a jewel
Instilled an innate mirth
An aura that rings a bell

My son, as a kid
You were creative
As you always did
Arts quite attractive

My son, as adolescent
You acted a special lad
With a mature ascent
Making me feel glad

My son, as you now stride
On your graduation installs
A gained triumphant pride
Flowing in me like waterfalls

My son, I love you always
Be courageous yet humble
Remain steadfast in all ways
As you and I will stand amiable

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
