to my unborn child

I'm writing down this letter, to my unborn son
Who before his first breath, my heart he's already won

I love you more then anyone can devise
From the tips of your toes, to the sparkle in your eyes

I hold your mother's hand, and we plan out your life
We can picture your white coat, and we can see your surgeon's knife

We know that you'll be great, at whatever it is you do
Just make sure your happy, and we'll be happy to

I love you my son, with all my heart and soul
I'm so very excited, that I barely have control

Your room is almost finished; it's the brightest shade of blue
With gold around the edges, it's only the best for you

I have some words of wisdom, which I feel I must impart
Remember these words always, and keep them in your heart

Dishonesty is bad; never use it to get by
Always tell the truth, even when you lie

Always love your woman, keep her first in your life
And she will always be there, to kiss away your strife

Always pull out chairs, and hold open every door
Kiss her on the forehead, and leave her wanting more

Enjoy this thing called life, don't live it cold and bland
Close your eyes and take a leap, never do things as you planned

Try not to lose your temper; it's really no big deal
But my son if you must fight, do it for something real

Take the time to listen, to what people have to say
And don't forget to smile; it could brighten someone's day

Try to live with patience, do it the best you can
Stand up for those who can't, and show the world that you're a man

Always be a leader, step forward never hide
Put yourself out there, and they'll stand by your side

These things I hope you learn, someday you'll come to find
But for now they're just a dream, tucked away inside my mind

My son I truly love you, though your face I've never seen
Now and forever, and everyday that comes between
