A Mother’s Son

Full of hopes

My dreams for you

Way back when you were only two

 

Presidential candidate

Astronaut

Michael Jackson

A moon that walked

 

Life ahead of you

Future bright

Dents in the wall

Your motorized bike

 

Football pee wee

Soccer shoes

Friday night skating

A girlfriend or two

 

Camping went

Marshmallow sticks

Falling Water

Sleeping in tents

 

Fire burns brightly

Shooting stars

Freezing cold

Sleeping in cars

 

Teenage years

Smoking pot

Raising hell

Likely, as not

 

Backyard bonfires

Aerosol cans

Policeman, fire trucks

Life in your hands

 

Boyish pranks

Before it’s too late

Juvie detention

Scaring you straight

 

Grandmother’s memory

Lost in space

Caring and feeding

Kissing her face

 

Crown molding

Drywall

A nail or two

Constructing a life

House shiny and new

 

Fighting addictions

Tricky and sly

A little won’t hurt me

The devil lies

 

Second chances

Save your life

Changing attitudes

Ending strife

 

Mother’s love

Strong and true

For today and always

Each day renewed

 

Never stronger

Full of faith

Hope still fills

Not too late

 

Presidential candidate

Astronaut

Michael Jackson

A moon that walks

 

Full of hopes

My dreams for you

Way back when you were only two
