My Beautiful Boy

The moment I laid eyes on you,

I knew what I’d been told was true.

Mommy’s chin,

Daddy’s nose.

I made sure,

You had all your toes.

Love swelled inside my heart,

Couldn’t imagine being,

One second apart.

I loved watching you grow,

Wondering how much you’d know.

Hearing you cry always hurts,

Trying my best,

To describe it in words.

One day,

You stopped seeing me,

Invisible, a ghost.

My heart was ripped apart,

When you were diagnosed.

I thought that’s it,

It’s over.

You and I,

Would never be closer.

Your daddy told me

They were wrong,

You would make it,

You were strong.

All I could do was pray,

Things wouldn’t turn out that way.

Now here we are,

You laugh and you play.

Daddy was right,

Everything is okay.

Today you look me in the eyes,

You’ve truly made me realize,

Miracles do come true,

Now you say I love you.

You are so friendly,

A bit crazy,

Yet, a little messy.

Those toy cars,

Always lined up perfect.

Don’t mess with them,

There’d be pay hell for it.

Repeating everything I say,

You even mock me when I laugh.

Have to stop my giggling

With everything I have.

Your hugs,

There is nothing,

They can’t cure.

You always remind me,

There’s nothing I can’t endure.

So, my beautiful boy

You’ve brought me so much joy.

My cheekie, Mi cochito

Que orgullosa estoy.

Every bit of my being,

Knows this to be true.

I have never been more proud,

I will always love you.
