To My Son

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 son is 18 years old and heading to college out of state. We've never been apart from each other. He is my first of two boys. I am preparing myself to let him fly off into Adulthood on his own. I feel confident he will be an exemplary husband and dad. I miss him already. He leaves next month. I love him so much and feel the same love from him. I will be here for him if he needs me and I will stay away when he wants me to. I pray to God asking for my son's wisdom and faith to always guide him in the right path. I am so proud of him! I love him so!!

I prayed for many years to have a healthy baby. God gave my son to me. He will be 12 soon, has had his first crush and his first heartbreak! He has this unwavering trust that no matter what happens his mother will always be there for him. I work hard to make sure that trust is never destroyed. I can't wait to see my beautiful child grow into a man, love a woman and have a family of his own. I want him to have a child so that he knows how wonderful it feels to have the kind of love he has for me. He is my pride, my joy

My son will be 40 tomorrow. I raised him all alone. He grew into the most caring and loving son. This poem made me cry as I read it.

My son is 18 now. 6"2, wide strong shoulders, he is the type of man you want your daughter to love. He has integrity, and strength of his convictions. I was a single mother raising three children on my own. He is my baby, my only son. I've been told, you've done a wonderful job. My two daughters finished college, each married. And both wonderful mothers. And my son never hesitates to pick them up and tell them he loves them. Even the two month old. He's a good man.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 look back and recall the years of my son's childhood where I had to play the role of both father and mother. Today I look at him with pride that he is my son
