I want a Son

I want to witness my baby boy’s birth.
I want to show him his promise, his worth.

I want my son to grow up playful and active.
I want my son to be outspoken, kind, and creative.
I want my son to see how proud he makes his dad.
I want my son to know he is loved and never have to be sad.

I want my son to grow up kind, brave, smart, and sweet.
I want my son to grow up, love, and compete.
I want my son to be well rounded and go out for things he enjoys.
I want my son to have many friends and hang out with his “boys”.
I want my son to bring a smile on his father’s face, whenever he wins first place.

I want my son to become a strong, smart, and kind man.
I want my son to have his own hopes, dreams, and plans.
I want my son to go to continue his education and go to college.
I want my son to find his soul mate and live happily in marriage.

My son one day you will read this and understand.
I want a better life for you because my true father ran.
