To My Son I Sometimes Wish

I sometimes wish you were still small
Not yet so big and strong and tall
For when I think of yesterday
I close my eyes and see you play

I often miss that little boy
Who pestered me to buy a toy
Who filled my days with pure delight
from early morn to late at night

We watch our children change and grow
As seasons come then quickly go
but our God has a perfect plan
To shape a boy into a man.

Today my son I’m proud of you
For all the thoughtful things you do
I’ll love you till my days are done
And I’m so grateful you’re my son

~ Larry Howland
