He Calls Me Ma..
Inquisitive from the start
Not afraid to make his mark
Never often out of place
One step ahead in any race
Humble in every possible way
Not afraid to have his say
I watched with pride as he took his first steps
Even more so when he eased through college prep
Rose to his defense when he was late to utter words
When he began to speak he properly used verbs(& nouns)
In full sentences!
Was never an average child from birth until
Somehow I just knew he’d reach any goal he chose
And over the years he just rose and rose and rose
An outstanding mentor he’s been/IS to his brothers(and so many others)
No mother could’ve wished for a more perfect firstborn; no other!
With tear-filled eyes I watched his defense of his dissertation
Mere words couldn’t express my awe & fascination
Wow! I kept thinking>> that is MY son!
As we embark upon the few days left till his ‘last’ graduation
I feel compelled to write out my undying love & admiration
Thank you son for an amazing ride and plenty of adventures
You’ve worked so, so hard & diligently!
I’ve learned so much with you and from you..
Looking forward to vicariously enjoying all your future ventures
Your new dream job(woo hoo) & eventually your own family unit
Never stop calling me those two letters I adore; that only you call me
And with private joy! for fun
I’ll call you those two letters that carry a beautiful melody
