Treasure Island

Angel Izquierdo

Dear Son


Adrian Angel, dear son of mine
I smiled with joy the day you came into my life

I long awaited your birth, and now that you're here,
I can't seem to leave your side

You're the son I always wanted and saw only in my dreams
Now those dreams are a reality and I'm happy as could be

I want to be your father, I want to be your friend
I want you to know I'm here for you son until the very end

One day you'll be reading this when you're a little older
And when that day comes my son, look over your shoulder,
and give your pops a hug

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
