A Little Boy!
Not many weeks left
Till you hold him in your arms.
He'll win you over right away
With all his little boy charms.
As you watch him grow
Right before your eyes,
You'll laugh each time he laughs
And cry each time he cries.
One day you'll see across the room
As he looks right back at you,
He'll do just what you said
You didn't want him to.
You'll have so many things
You want to teach him, too,
How to get across the street,
How to tie his shoe,
What is up, what is down,
Which is left and right,
When to entertain your guests
And when to say good night.
When he's left your loving nest,
No matter where he's gone,
You'll look for letters he will write,
Or wait for calls on the phone.
He'll be the light of your life
Even across the miles.
And every time you hear from him,
You'll be left with love and smiles.
So even though across the years
There may be bumpy days,
Remember the boy you hold right now
Is on the inside always.
