They say it’s love before sight
And it’s true.
I loved you before you were born.
Before you were torn from me.
Before those tiny hands grabbed my fingers
And your cries filled the night.
The flood of new love
That washes over me every day
Still takes me by surprise.
I’ve gotten to know you my darling
And you have quite the sense of humor
And quite the temper.
But when you grab my hand and kiss it
And I feel like the heavens have gifted me.
The world has never seemed so great
And it has never seemed so threatening.
Every day is precious with you my son.
Oh there are those out there
Who break these bonds
Who cut the branches from the trees.
But you will never be severed from heart
The universe may be infinite
But so is my love for you.
And when I am ashes
And tears fall from your lashes
