A tenderness from deep within
Touches my very soul
From the first moment
I laid eyes on you
Til in my arms I did hold.

Your innocence did fill my heart
As I gazed down on your face
I knew the years would soon rush by
As if in a marathon race.

Where has the time gone my son
From toys to pickup trucks
Why it seems like only yesterday
You were riding on the bus.

Now it's football games
And the senior prom
Then tomorrow College starts.

What's this you say you've found someone
And she has won your heart.
It's wedding bells and soon you tell
You're having a son of your own.

What joy there will be
As you will see
When you bring God's gift back home
Keep a watch my son
Let him romp and run
For the years will come and go.

Take time to teach and love him
And respect for him always show
For these simple words of wisdom
Will cause his love to grow.
