He is not like the other boys
The kind, gentle son, unique
Athlete so gifted since an infant
Older brother’s envy laments if only
I had half his talent …
A child so rare so timid loves to snuggle
Swears he will never move away from mom and dad
So special so soft so rugged
Gentle to babies and yet an inner strength
Loves pets, shoes, his siblings …
Is he the one after God’s own heart?
Who is vulnerable yet so strong?
Loved by all yet so deep in his thoughts
Where do you get lost my boy, where?
An inner strength yet inner secret grows …
Alas, I pray my son stay special
In this world of slings and arrows
To know who he is, what he wants
Why he wants, where he is going
How he will get there …
