Jon - My Football Hero

One day my little boy of three
With great big smiling eyes
Said, "I'm going to play some football mom
With all the bigger guys!"
Dressed in homemade football gear
You raced out towards the street
I chuckled to myself, but yet...
My heart plunged to my feet.
You came back in fifteen minutes
No scratches on your skin
With much dismay you then announced,
"They wouldn't let me in"!
You claimed they said you couldn't play
Because you were too small
I promised you you'd play one day
When you grew strong and tall.
My promise to you held so true
For now that time is here,
My smiling football player
Is in his senior year
I'm proud of you and all you've done
And for all that you will be
If I just had one wish, I'd wish
That you could still be three.
