This is a poem I wrote in honor of my son who has been faithfully helping us out due to my husband's lay off. He is a big boy standing 6'5" weighing in at 283. He is such a sweet boy and I wish to honor him with this poem.

David Jonathan

by Susan H Fouts

Named from a king

After God's own heart

Named from his friend

Son of a king

Large in stature

Big in heart

When it comes to video games

You're oh so smart.

It takes a lot to feed you

But we are happy when you are pleased

Sometimes you are grumpy

But you work hard

To take care of your family

We appreciate you

We appreciate your heart

We appreciate your childish innocence

That children are drawn to.

They sense the gentle Ben

A great big teddy bear

You make us laugh with humor

You make us cry when you are sad

But gentleness engulfs you

So quietly you move

You have sacrificed a lot

To take care of your family

I hope you are blessed a hundredfold

For your sacrifices made.

You're a wonderful son

I'm glad you were born

To make a smile come to my face

To capture a little heaven and a little grace
