    For my son :)

    Dedicated to the One I Love

    I thought I knew what love was
    I had it all figured out
    But, then I had you
    And, everything changed

    It's not always easy
    In fact, there are days when it gets really tough
    But, the days without you is when I know it's worth it
    Because, without you, my days are rough

    When you're here, I find myself smiling
    Just to have you here makes me happy
    I love going to the park with you
    And, the best is reading to you and tucking you in at night

    You're my life
    You taught me what real love was all about
    Because of you, I am always trying to be a better person
    Everything I do, I do for you

    The times are especially rough right now
    But, when I see your face
    I remember why I am fighting
    It is you and your happiness that has me moving forward

    My dreams for you are many
    But, in the end, I know it's your life
    Just as long as you're happy and succeed
    I am happy

    Doctor, lawyer, drummer, mechanic, athlete, or artist
    It doesn't matter what you do
    Just be yourself no matter what
    Never be someone just to impress

    Take what I teach you and then some
    Academics, tact, kindness, and truth
    Never be afraid to learn from others
    All the people in your life can teach you much

    And, above all the mess
    Know that your daddy and I love you
    Life isn't how I'd hoped it'd be for you
    But, I know it can be wonderful if you let it

    I miss you right now
    But, I stay strong
    I know I will see you soon
    And then all will be well

    It's because of you I keep moving on
    Everything I accomplish now is because you make me believe
    Thank you for your inspiration
    And, thank you for the greatest gift of all...your love.

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
