My Son

I am in awe of the man you are becoming
I remember you as a tiny baby
Looking at the world with eyes wide open
Not afraid of anything
Taking it all in

You grew into a playful little boy
Always into something
Always testing the limits

You flourished as a young teen
Mindful
Kind
Respectful

Now a young man
Starting a life in the Navy
Still
Not afraid of anything
Taking it all in
Always into something
Always testing the limits
Mindful
Kind
Respectful

There were times in your youth
I said aloud
Raising you would be my greatest challenge
I now know
Raising you was my greatest privilege
The world is a better place because of you
