Father and Son

He came into your world
at just the perfect time
His eyes were fixed on you
the cries you didn't mind

His mother was so proud
an heir to keep the name
You bragged to all your friends
life never was the same

He watched you every day
quite often mimicked you
The words you chose to use
he often spoke them to

And now the son is grown
his ways are fixed and firm
A child he soon will have
his ways that child will learn

    Yes, we pass on to our children our ways. may they learn only what is good in our lives. I have two sons. They reflect both some of my husband and some of me.
