To my son with love

I don’t know where you going
I don’t know what to do
I don’t know how to save
Your own life and you

So many years went by
When you left your home, your nest
I always wanted nothing more
For you to have the best

You let yourself so easy
You chose easy life to live
You are so good in heart
You have so much to give

Life is so fragile and frail
Life is like mist in the rain
We have only one life to live
Only one life, and never again

Why waste your life 
On things that make you weak
You are funny and smart
Handsome and unique

So many people love you
How hard it is to see
Your biggest fan of all
It is of course - me

You put yourself together
You turn your life around
The love you seeking for
One day I’m sure you’ll find                                       

I wish for you to have the best
To see the world, have fun
I wish for you the best in all
Simply because, you are my son

    A very moving piece. We want the best for our children. Many a child has been lifted by a mother's loving prayers. He is fortunate to have such a loving mom.
