First Son Growing

First Son Growing


In the long run the boy will be worth
all the misery I’ve caused you,
all the grief.
If only for his smile, 

yours, I know.
If only for his eyes,
mine, I know.
But his eyes, 

they have your smile,
brighter than a rainbow,
streaming through them. 


Donal Mahoney
