My Boy

Dedicated to my son on his 18th birthday.

My boy!  Now all grown to a man
An icon to the rest
A man who always works so hard
And always does his best
A man who’s learnt to carry on
When all else may just fall
A man that holds his head up high
And stands up straight and tall

Content in knowing his true worth
Determined to achieve
To go that little bit further
And yet through live has weaved
Compassion, care; integrity
That seeks as much as finds
A man who’s turning 18 now
Has fortitude of mind

And so my wish for my grown boy
Is honour truth but more
To walk a path responsibly
With love; respect ensure
And go forth into adulthood
Equipped to serve and live
A citizen of world order
That takes less than he gives
