My Son to Come

Arrange rays of sunshine 
to make my son shine 
with light or dark he is my heart
although his existence 
is just a figment. 
I count the days until his age. 

One, two
then he'll learn to tie his shoe
three, four
and he'll learn to build a fort
He is not here 
but my heart is filled,
with love for him like no other

I am his mother
