For my little boy

 

A touch of sunlight in your hair
Your ever playful smile
The silence lingers in the air
Let’s stay here for a while

Let’s talk about the sun
And everything that grows
I’ll tell you how it all began
First time I touched your little toes

Let’s talk about the oceans
The vast beauty down below
A world that’s in slow motion
Where creatures thrive in moonlight glow

Let’s talk about the sand
Down to its tiny grains
And while I hold your little hand
So much of joy remains

Let’s talk about the rain
And it’s amazing power
In giving life it holds the reign
A nature’s cleansing shower

Let’s talk about the moon
A satellite in all its glory
And how you’ll grow up soon
In time you’ll write your story

Let’s talk about the sky
And all the possibilities
How fast the days fly by
And how you master your abilities

Let’s talk about the snow
And everything that glistens
I’ll hold you till you say let go
I’ll be the one who listens

Let’s talk about the rivers
And their importance to the earth
How this world is full of givers
And how you’ve flourished since your birth

I will accept you for everything you are
The good, the strange the awesome
No matter near or far
I’m here to watch you blossom

Love, mama
