Billy

a poem by S H Fouts

Cradled deep inside my womb,

I heard God speak to me

He said a son you shall have

And a blessing he will be

Life's dealt a blow

With physical woe

And genetic imperfections

With a crooked spine

And one kidney

What were my expectations?

Was it due to LSD

or even agent orange?

Or was it mercury in fish

I do not know at all.

But this for sure I know

That my love for you is strong

A blessing you are

A handsome man you've grown into

Shining like a star

A star, you are, a shining star

Light flashing from afar

I believe God has His hand

upon your shoulder's son

To lead you and to guide you

Into His perfect plan.

I love you as you are

Accept you as you are

But I believe God has more for you

To turn you into His star.
