I had to re-post for my son, too,
I watch you
as you play
a simple toy
a swing or slide
a shovel in the sand
all big adventures
I take your hand
as we walk
a subtle breeze
light brown hair
not a summer day
but a warm day
Your smile is brighter
My days are bright
with Blue Eyes

This was written when my son was just a little guy.
The photo was scanned, so it’s not the best
and his blue eyes aren’t noticeable,
but he has them like his daddy!
(He’s 6’1″ and almost 17 now)

That’s just lovely, Lauren. Wow, you wrote it so long ago. It’s vintage now.
You have a tall boy too.
Thanks, Deb, yes, this one I wrote many, many moons ago! He’s slightly taller than Dad now! Hugs to you, too, and have a wonderful day! xo
I’m sure this poem elicits fond memories for you. It certainly evokes wonderful playful images for those of us who have watched our own children grow up.
It truly does, Mark, and it’s fun to reminisce. I’m glad this created playful, precious images of your children, too. I appreciate your comment~
Such a lovely poem, I love it. I hope this comment go through, I have bn having trouble liking and commenting on my blog and anyone else!
Thank you, PJ, and I hope all is fixed now…it’s frustrating when things don’t work around here! 🙂
WOW!!!! I’m a dwarf! 😦
lol! :D… Hi Lauren 😉
Hi FK, it’s good to see you and I’m a dwarf next to my son, too! 🙂
Chubby Cheeks, …. Eyes are blue, lovely too. Teacher’s pet, “is that you”.. 🙂
beautiful poem Lauren 🙂
I so want to hug this cutie pie but am sure he is all grown up now..why do kids grow up.. and that too so fast 🙂
love n hugs 🙂
Yes, he had little chubby cheeks and I still hug him, but he’s definitely taller! Thanks for all your love and hugs and back to you, Soma! xo
‘your smile is brighter than sunshine…’ How lovely, Lauren!
Thanks, David, I meant it. That age was so cute and precious..
Aaww, I love this Lauren. Takes me back to when my boys were small. The time goes so quickly, doesn’t it?
Thanks, Betty, yes, it does fly by fast…I do miss those precious moments with them! But, it’s nice to be able to communicate with them on more of an adult level now, too…
Oh, Lauren, I’m such a sucker for kid pics!! I wonder if you ever wish they were still little enough to scoop up? Though I’ve no doubt they’ve grown into wonderful young adults. God bless y’all.
I am, too, Caddo, and yes, it would be fun to scoop them up again, but I am proud and lucky to say that they are both responsible and good “kids.” As I told Betty, now it’s nice to be able to communicate with them as young adults; more on the same page…it’s all wonderful, all of their stages. Thanks for your blessings and sending them back to you, too.
Such a sweet and lovely poem!
Thank you so much!
You have brought a tear of sweet nostalgia to my eye today, for your posts featuring your daughter and your son remind me so much of my own daughter and son at these ages. Now my granddaughter and grandson are bright and healthy and full of simple joy in life like them.
Awww…that’s wonderful you have your grandchildren to relive those precious ages, Rose…time flies fast.
Beautiful poem Lauren and a cute pic! 🙂
A mother and son relationship is a special one for sure. Good thing you reposted his poem or him and your daughter may have a little fight 😀
Thanks, Scott, and I’m thankful that I have a great relationship with them both, now that they’re older, of course, there are times when I’m cool and times when I’m weird, such is life! :)…And yes, after I posted my daughter’s poem, I thought I had better post my son’s, too, or I’d be in big trouble! 🙂
What a lovely poem, and your son is just darling 🙂 Wow, he is tall now, they do grow up so fast, but having the photos is so great, we can wander down memory lane 🙂 hugs
Thanks so much, Autumn! I’ll tell ya, it’s strange looking “up” at him now! He’s slightly taller than Dad and still growing, so it’ll be interesting where he ends! We have tons of photos, which I’m sure you do, too, and it is fun wandering down memory lane every so often. Hugs to you, too! 🙂
Children are a blessing.
Yes, they are! 🙂
Aww, this is so lovely! So tall now too. 😀
Thanks, Eve, and yes, he is! 🙂
Lovely poem and cute pic, Lauren! What joy to see our children growing up as responsible young adults! May the Lord bless your family abundantly! Love to you, sis!
Thanks, Cynthia, and it is fun to watch them grow and change through the years…your blessings are appreciated and I send them back to you, too! Hugs to you, too, sis! xo
beautiful, Lauren. Poetry written for your son is very precious, even more than a photograph! Love, Linda
Thanks so much, Linda! Love and hugs for you today! xo
