Scott Austin

My Son

The day we met
It was sunny and bright
We drove for hours and hours
To the place where you were kept

You were but three
Such a wonderful sight
You were so tiny

You were full of get-up-and-go
You were so fast
You ran like a flash

It was hard
To keep in sight
You ran out that door
As quick as you could

You were yelling
Daddy, Daddy, Daddy! ! !
As you ran down those stairs
You slipped and fill

I ran to you
To picked you up
From that grown
In which you were down
You had such a frown

I told you it would be ok
As I brushed you off
I kissed your knee
To ease the pain

You begin to cry
With those big brown eyes
All I could do
Was to hug you tight

As those tears continued run
I bounced you in my arms
To comfort you
As good father would

I sat us down
On those steps
To wipe the tears
That ran so clear

This was the day
When we first met
I knew just then
You were the son
That we could not have

I tell you this
You melted my heart
That much is true
For this could only mean one thing

For child as magnificent as you
It is only my love
That I could give to you

From that day forward
I knew it to be true
We would become
This new family of four

    This is a nice poem and the interesting thing about it is your emotions that are being shown in this poem. It was really strong and I can tell that you love your boy very much and children bring so much joy into peoples lives because they are so innocent and pure in the heart. So may this child keep you inspired to keep writing and keep your motivation high.

    I can tell you are a parent who cares. Many do not care today. Keep writing. I just wrote a few new ones. I think you will enjoy 'Little One, Little Voice' and also 'Inside Her Little World'...there are others. Thank you...

    BEAUTIFUL! ! Your poems about your kids really touch my heart, Scott, as there are so many Dad's that do not take care of their kids. Kids need a Mom and a Dad! ! Barbara

    So touching this poem is. I am glad to have read it. For what does a newborn do to a family, but brings light to all.

    Beautiful, a piece that should be placed in his baby book for the year he has his own son.
