When you...

A poem about the relationship between a father and son as they grow older.


1. My Son

When you cried, I cradled you to sleep,

When you smiled you brought joy to me,

When you whined I bought you a balloon.

When you were ill you brought tears to me,

When you recovered you gave me relief.


When you fell my heart tore me,

When you went wrong I corrected you,

Now when I go wrong you call me annoying.

When I smell you walk away from me,

When I need to talk to you, you totally ignore me.


When I can’t hear you, you call me deaf,

When I lose my sight, don’t hurt me.

When you said dad, tears flowed from me,

When I die I want you to know I will always love you,

My son…
