Beloved Son

I am a mother
To a special son
a mother who can look
into her son's eyes
Where she sees pain
Because he feels hers
she sees his frustration
He can't help her
Pride also shows
In his eyes
He sees how she fights
he is also afraid
What if she gives up
And great love
Because she tries so hard
I am the mother
That feels love
for this son
As vast as the oceans
Endless as the universe
Great respect
For the man he has become
She feels friendship
What this son cannot grasp
is this mother's bond
You are my hero
you are an ear
When I need one the most
A shoulder
When the tears come
When I am scared
Sometimes I forget
To make sure
You know
How very much I love you
Carry these words
With you always
My dearest son
The center of my heart
Never forget my love
Our bond
My pride in you
My respect for you
