He stands there in front of me,

Wearing his dimpled smile.

Filled with happiness,

And a beautiful innocence.

Little does he realize,

He’s taught me patience,

And constantly reminds that time doesn’t matter.

The love for him I can’t explain.

This compassion I feel,

And wanting only to see him happy.

Everyday a little bit more he changes,

Within the lessons he learns.

I helped create him,

Watched him come into this world.

I may be watching him grow,

Yet he’ll never know that he made me a man.
