My Baby Boy, Always

Nineteen years ago, a precious gift, given to me Having a son to call my own, forever to keep A bond between mother and son, never to be broken A love so great, to define in words, could never be spoken Frequently I visit that night, just to hold you in my arms To remember what it feels like, to shelter you from harm October 31, 1996, my life became anew Family gathered outside, waiting for the news Your dad and I so anxious, to look upon your face As time drew near, our hearts began to race Counting every minute, as time was passing by The wait finally over, as we heard your welcome cry Neo Natal called to stand-by, my heart dropped in my chest Asking God to intervene, He proved His faithfulness In my arms you was placed, I thanked God above Perfect in every way, a son to forever love That evening I held you close, not wanting to let you go The peace that entered from within, forever to hold Contentment for hours, your face I looked upon It is amazing, the love, between mother and a son I have always believed, God holds great plans for you Always allow Him, to guide and see you through Running to and fro, quoting scripture from God's Holy Book As a little boy, in you, the Holy Spirit, overtook Looking back I see, time refused to stand still Having plans and dreams of your own, wanting to fulfill From a baby boy to a man, exceptional you have become A life of chasing dreams, your future has begun Always know that through this life, I am close to you Praying for guidance, your biggest fan, cheering you through There is no doubt in my mind, great things you will accomplish Hold to the hand of God, my son, He will give you the life He promised Born unto me, innocent, and pure as the driven snow When my time comes to part this life, I pray you will always know I am watching from above, as all your dreams fulfill As you travel life's roads, asking Jesus to take the wheel A perfect mother, I have never been, though I love you so All that I have taught you, I pray you will forever hold Jesus is the way, with Him you are never lost Never turning your back, always looking to the cross No words could ever explain, the love a mother holds for her son The joy you have brought to my life, never to be undone As long as the sun rises and cast itself upon the sea To me, my baby boy, you will always be Chase your dreams, with God as your guiding star Become the man God intended, a child of God, you are Many lessons you have taught me, as I watched you grow That love exceeds, with no boundaries, a love so unknown Remember I am by your side, through thick and thin Never to leave you or forsake you, with you until the end In life, many will fail you, never to see you through Wherever you go in life, I promise to follow you I love you son, as high as the mountains, deep as the sea Having you for a son has made my life complete Deep inside, my heart you will forever be My little boy, I will protect and love, throughout eternity Dedicated to my son, Colton. From a little boy to an exceptional young man! I love you as high as the mountains, rivers wide and deep as the sea! Written by: Donetta Harless Friday, July 29, 2016
