I Love You, Baby

© Stephanie E. Layton
When I found out you were coming,
It took me by surprise.
It took me time to realize
I'll have a son by my side.

People said well, your too young,
you don't know what you’re doing.
You'll have no future for your baby,
your life is now all ruined.

I blew them off and worked real hard.
For future is what I'll give him.
Nothing less is what he deserves,
for he is a gift from heaven.

June 17th, the time has come.
The birth of my son is here.
How big will you be? Are you healthy?
What color will be your hair?

So many questions run in my head
as I'm waiting for you to come out.
The next thing I hear, the greatest thing.
You let out a tremendous shout.

Your cry was like a beautiful
song sung just for me.
I knew now that you were safe
and soon you'll be with mommy.

In my arms your body went.
I counted ten fingers and toes.
Then I looked at your face.
I counted two eyes and a nose.

Time went by way too fast.
Now your learning to crawl.
Before I know it, the day will come
when I'm chasing you down the hall.

Happy Birthday to my HIMS.
What a year it has been.
You've learned so much and getting bigger.
Your one and you'll soon be 10.

I love you always and forever.
You'll always be by my side.
Its HIMS & mommy from here
on out until the end of time.
