You are my son, a part of me, and that
will never change,
No matter what you do in life my love
will still remain.
I held you as a baby and I looked
into your face,
And I knew then, no other one could ever
take your place.

I knew then as I held you,
you would grow to be a man,
And anything you did in life
Id try to understand.
I knew you would make choices and would
follow your own heart,
I only prayed that in your life
Id always have a part.

I knew some things you did in life
would give me so much pride,
But also realized some things
would tear me up inside.
I only want the best for you
and want you to succeed,
And want you to find happiness
with everything you need.

I can only guide you
and give you a helping hand,
You will choose the path to take
now that you are a man.
Along the road that you will choose,
whatever that may be,
Just remember this my son
that you can count on me.

I will not try to push you
to live life in my own stride,
I only promise I will love you
and stand by your side.
I know that you will make mistakes
and life is full of them,
But realize my love for you
will not let me condemn.

I know this life's not perfect
and we do the best we can,
Just realize I love you
and Ill always understand.
I knew one day you would grow up
and you would leave my nest,
I will do what I can for
you and let God do the rest.

I have held you in my arms
and done the best I can,
Now I pray that God will hold
you now that you're a man.
Just remember in my heart you are
a special one,
And I will always proudly tell the world,
"this is my son."
