Son Poem

As this mother thinks of her son growing up going through all the stages that he's gone through, she lets him know that she will always be there to support him.

To My Son

© Amy R. Campbell
Oh how the years go by,
Oh how time can certainly fly.
From once just a thought in far away dreams,
now into my arms and in my eyes gleam
the presence of you.
Your laughter and smiles
which go on for miles,
warms my heart and soul.
You're growing up so fast,
as I wish each moment with you to last forever.
My little boy will someday be a man
and right by your side I will forever stand.
I will pick up the pieces when you fall,
I will hold your hand and help you stand tall.
And when the day comes when you are on your own,
never feel that you are alone.
No matter how near or far apart
I am always right there in your heart.
Always remember whatever you go through
that no matter what, I will always love you.

  • My beautiful son is 3 next month. I'm about to enter Court proceedings to agree access with his father and was looking for sources of strength to get through this, whatever the outcome may be.

    This poem is something I will remember and use to show my son how he's the singularly most important person in my life, and will be for as long as I breathe. Thank you.

  • I wish that my sons will always be a kid. How I wish they will always be by my side. I don't want them to grow up. But lets face reality. A son will grow and have a life on their own, but I will always and forever assure them that I will always be here for them no matter what. I will always be at their life and I will always love them more than myself.

  • My son is my life. For all reasons I'm here today is because of my son. I hope that after my separation the custody and care will be fully given to me as I have kept my son into my arms all the years. My retirement is the day that I surrender my son to his future would be.....and my love to him will never fade now and forever. I love you son.

  • My son is six years old. He's beautiful and smart boy. I can't believe that he's six already, time is flying by, and I'm so busy taking care of him. And showing my endless love to my beautiful baby boy. Allah(God) made me to be his Mother and that's a very expensive gift from Allah.

  • A framed poem on my mother's wall from before I can remember was entitled, "T O M Y S O N". When I was old enough to read, I
    knew my name was not "Tommy", so I didn't read it until she died. It began, "Know you not that your soul is a part of mine?" And ended with, "Make the proud world pay homage to me, that they will say, She reaped as she sowed, ''Lo, this is her son!" It disappeared from my office wall during a move, but I would like to have the rest of it.
