Poetry By: Shotzie

This is a poem about the Miracle of my life and he is my son . Watching him grow into a young man as I feel his innocence slipping away.

Once you were only a sparkle in my eye,

A baby boy was born naive, Unknowing and shy.


Until one day it seems as life as flown by,

Seeing my beautiful innocent baby boy growing up

First crawling, then walking and learning to fly.


No more hugs and kisses

Mom I'll be home soon as he says goodbye,

Now I lay my head on a different pillow

Reflecting of memories as I endlessly cry.


As he enters life as a young man

His mind changes, time quickly passes him by,

Stern rules and a soft voiced friend,

was all part of my plan,

to watch him take those steps into life's challenges

While he soars to fly.


I see my baby boy growing up with responsibility;

He needs to learn and to try.

To realize in his lifetime that true love

And support will always be close by.
