First Born

Family & Memories

My first child,

It seems he was just born.

As I look through the boxes,

of the tiny clothes he had worn.

My first child,

and now he's taller than me!

He's now the young man,

that I dreamed he would be.

My first child,

How could I ever know?

How joyous it would be,

Just to watch him grow.

My first child,

All too soon, I must send him out.

To the big and scary world,

That I still haven't figured out!

My first child, Matthew,

as you go on your way,

Know that I love you,

each and every day!
