Poem From A Father On The Birth Of His Son

My name is Greg Kerr and my son has just been born. I have never written a poem before my boy was born. I live in Perth, Australia and this poem is full of the emotion that I am experiencing since. More especially, as my wife and I are so far away from our families, this also is highlighted in the emotion. I never thought that my heart could feel this full, it's wonderful and sad that we can only share Ethan through photographs and videos with our loved ones.

An Ode To Ethan

Published: March 2011

Today it happened,
it's finally done,
the birth of my boy,
the little man, my son.

After a long tiring wait,
a sweet sound came,
the point when our lives,
would never be the same.

It was the sound of the cries,
signaling the start of new life.
I can't describe how proud I am,
of my brave and beautiful wife.

I'll admit that I too,
cried tears of joy.
When for the very first time,
I at last saw my boy.

As I stood there in awe,
and gazed down at his face,
in an instant the world,
became a much better place.

My heart was bursting,
with an intense sense of pride,
as I pictured my life,
with my son at my side.

I know it's early days,
and we've only just met,
but I promise I'll be,
the best father a boy can get.

I'll love you forever,
my son and my wife,
keep you safe, and protect you,
for all of my life.

I have 3 little nephews and I love them to death I would do anything in this world to show how much I care. If anything ever happens to them I would break down and cry just to see one of them hurt I will die. They are my life, my world, my sons, I love them since the day they were born.
