I Love You, Son

My love for you was born before
          You ever saw the light,
And to this day you can be sure,
          Our bond formed at first sight.

On one September, sunny day,
          So many years ago,
You crept into my heart to stay,
          The son I’d come to know.

And through the years you grew so fast,
          I raised you best I knew.
You know, my growl, it didn’t last,
          Besides, you made it through.

You’ve reached the point, you are a man.
          Of you, I am so proud.
And though you’re leaving I still can,
          Hug you – for I’m allowed

The April PAD challenge (Day 23) prompted for a love poem.  I wrote a short poem about a father’s love.
