To Our Son On His 34th Birthday

I remember fondly days of yore
When you were just a lad...
The joy of this Mother's heart,
The pride of dear ol' Dad.

With curls and dimples, twinkling eyes,
You sailed through my heart and life,
And in your wake left tears and smiles...
So soon you took a wife.

I ponder future scenes also,
(I don't know that I should)
When you'll recall with tears and smiles
YOUR children's childhoods.

Yes! Lindsey, Brandon, Haley too,
Will soon be Pas and Mas,
For time flies by and soon you'll hear,
"I wuv you so Gampa!"

But the past is merely memories
And the future's but a dream.
'Tis futile, Son, to dwell on these,
A waste, or so it seems!

So forget the unchangeable past
That echoes, "'Tis done, 'tis done!"
And forget the unknowable future
With its dreams that may not come.

Yet, one last piece of wisdom
I'll impart to thee, my Son,
Forget also the present...
'Cause you ain't gettin' one!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Very cute, Linda. You have a way with words. This will be a treasure for your son to keep. It is "present" enough, worth more than any present you could buy.

Linda, this is delightful I love it! Your words flowed nicely and you had a great theme. I too like your ending.... very classic. LOL Sons are a blessing. Again ... beautiful job! Bessie

Bravo! Bravo! Light hearted, soul searching, enlightening and frightening...all that without getting depressing, somber or blue....the punch line was classic! I really enjoyed this one!!
