A Letter To My Unborn Sons - Poem by Andrew Sheran

I dream of your face smiling back at me
Thoughts of embracing you with the strength that I know you will return in time
You see the thoughts of mine are not ones that are trivial
The love that I have for you could never fall to a minimal level of complacency
I could never be forced or challenged to locate the emotions that overwhelm me
Because in you I see me and the future of a legacy that goes back to my father, and my father's father and beyond
No way to explain the Sheran name and its history to you but through my kiss and smile as I look at you
My God how could you be so perfect?
The whole time I have been longing to hold your hand in mine has been so worth it

Truly a miracle you are to your mom and I
Ever so divine
I can't believe you are mine
I can't profess or express the importance of love manifested in your eyes
Dependant on the both of us to provide the necessities of life that will be your foundation
You can count on us going the extra mile to elevate and stimulate your education
Many are called but few are chosen and you were chosen for a reason
I hope that we can be the parents that you can be proud of in due season

I pray that you will understand when we have to apply discipline to your behind
And we know it will hurt us when we hear you cry
But forgiveness is a blessing that I hope you won't deny us the option of having
That forgiveness will be everlasting in our hearts and souls, time and death can't stop it
The one thing that I want you to hold true in your mind
Never forget the family unit that you are a part of
There will be some times where you don't like us, but always love us
Your mom and I have been there, done that, got the shirt for it
Believe me when I tell you that you'll be better off because of it
