To My Son

To My Son

My child came around the other day

and I noticed something I never seen

I couldn't resist I just had to say

I'm proud of you, son. If you need to lean

on anyone, i'm always around.”

He reached out and put his arms around me

'Cause of these chains I am forever bound

But I know you will help me to be free.”

Watching him grow, I could see he would be

every last big of this old dad of his.

As I sit here today I can see

just how much he is like me, times like this

one is in my heart. He's grown up like me

now it's his turn to be who he is...free.
