Son I love you

you are still my baby.

It doesn’t seem so long ago but it is 38yrs I can’t believe it but I know that  it is so. It dose not matter where or how old you are you are still my shining first born star.

It hit me hard yesterday when you went on another aeroplane far away. Silly now it may be, you have travelled far and wide you see. But this trip bought it home to me. You are the first of three and though you all are dear to me. It was you and I that had to learn as we went along how to manage, care for and love and sing a nursery song. We made it up as we went along.

So as you go about your work today in that country so far away listen carefully and you will hear your mother say I  love you son and miss you while you are so far away.

It doesn’t seem so long ago but it is 38yrs I can’t believe it but I know that  it is so. It dose not matter where or how old you are you are still my shining first born star.

    That’s just what my mom says about me, even though I’m 53! 😉

      It is heartfelt I love my three sons I pray I have no favourites. They are all left home but with the eldest away on this business trip I felt the invisible umbilical pulled. Thank you for your kind words.

    What a sweet message to your child. A touching heartfelt reminder. They grow up so quickly

    OH! They do grow up quickly and we still feel that they are not in the country even when they no longer live at home. I cannot explain it I just know he is away. Yesterday he tried to skype me but I had my laptop on mute and so missed his call I will not make the same mistake again. 🙂

    I love this, it reminds me of my father and missing this word also from my mom …

    Thank you for referring me to this poem, willowdot21. It is so important to cherish deeply what we have in children. Losing Kevin was shattering for Ethel and I, but our two daughters and our grandchildren keep us going. What is important is to celebrate our children while they are part of our lives. When they are gone you can still celebrate them, but it is not the same. I hope this poem went into the heart and spirit of your son. Such love strengthens people if it is said in words, and in that strengthening is great joy that can help sons (and daughters) get through difficult times and do good things inside their own families. Thank you again.

      I am so pleased that you have family to love , it is so important as you say to verbalize these feelings, I am lucky my boys even now tell me they love my husband and I and we can freely reply the same and we mean it.
