Birthday Poem

I've Always Loved You, Son

I wrote this for my son on his birthday. He was only eight then, and I don't know if he understood the depth of my poem. But he reached out to hug me and said, "Nice." I forgot about the poem after that. He turned 15 last year, and when we were talking about birthday gifts one day, he shared that his most memorable birthday gift was the poem I had written for him when he was little. Thankfully I was able to find the card that I had given him. I hope the soul of my poem resonates with you.

Happy Birthday, Son


Published by Family Friend Poems January 2019 with permission of the Author.

From the moment I looked into your eyes,
I knew that I was never going to be the same again.
You held my gaze, not once looking away
as you reached out to grip my finger.

I knew then that I would never let you go.
I have fallen in and out of love many times,
but I could never fall out of love with you.

You, my dear, were part of me before
I knew you by your name.
