Danny Boy

Danny, this seemed the perfect time
And too long overdue,
To take a moment to tell you son,
How proud I am of you.

My father always had a wish
For a son to call his own,
But, God blessed him with three little girls.
Then, too soon my dad was gone.

I told my mom, when I was eight,
With my heart filled up with joy,
Someday I know I’ll have a son,
And I’ll call him “Danny Boy.”

God granted me that special wish,
And as I’ve watched you grow,
My little boy has become a man
That’s truly a joy to know.

Its funny how in so many ways
You remind me of my dad,
Everything from his beautiful smile
To those “smiling eyes” he had.

Such a dedicated father you are,
And such a hard-worker, too.
You’re always there when needed
By the ones that count on you.

I love you, now and always,
Though miles keep us apart.
There’s always a place for “Danny Boy”
In the center of my heart.
Love, Mom

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