Father Poem

Love Poem To A Son On His First Birthday

Hello, my name is Asad, and I am a father of three lovely children. My daughter, who is the eldest, is 10 years old, and my two sons are 8 and 1. My youngest son has unknowingly inspired me to put my thoughts together in the shape of a poem. This poem portrays what and how I feel in the presence of my son, which hopefully other fathers will relate to. I wrote this poem to mark my son's 1st birthday. I hope you will enjoy reading the poem as much as I have enjoyed writing it. With kind regards.

Through The Eyes Of A Father


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2014 with permission of the author.

He wakes me bright and early every morn,
'Tis his hunger, for which he is torn.
So beautifully cradled, so lovingly raised,
'Tis no wonder to God, for mothers we praise.
So dear, so beloved, so perfectly smitten,
If he were a score, he'd be the finest ever written.
That thoughtful pause, that longing gaze,
Never ever ceases to amaze.
That ray of sun, creeping through the curtain ajar,
Such a kaleidoscope spectacle, can be seen from afar.
The radiance, the warmth, the ever felt glow,
So majestic but oh so very humble.
Twinkle, that magic in his eye, golden mane,
So much anger and yet so tame.
As I grow old and time passes by,
In his hands, the reins shall lie.
From a father to a son, whom I dearly cherish,
Thoughts never die, while the body will surely perish.
