Always and Forever

I was not there when you took your first breath.
I missed your first word and your first step.
I couldn't protect you, from what you should never have faced,
But God knew how much I needed you.

Those early years where hard, I'm sure
But you rose above it all.
No little man could ever have been braver,
You showed them all that nothing could break you.

The first time we met, we went to the circus,
You spent the whole time glued to my lap.
You needed a Mom and I needed a son,
God knew how much I needed you.

You came for visit and stole everyone's heart,
There was no doubt that you had found your home.
We were nervous, but you were so confident.
God knew how much I needed you.

The day when you finally never went back,
that was the day I knew I was whole.
People look now and can never believe,
But God knew how much I needed you.

You're growing so fast, it blows my mind.
I love the way you protect and watch over me.
The bond that we share, is thicker than blood.
Because God knew how much I needed you.

Happy Birthday my son.
I love you.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
