Blue Eyes

I had to re-post for my son, too,
from 10.17.11~

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
blows your
light brown hair
not a summer day
but a warm day
in winter
Your smile is brighter
than sunshine
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)

    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.

    1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 😀

    1. 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! 🙂

    1. 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! 🙂
