my Pride

Caring in his ways,
tender in his touch,
the soft expressions on his face,
and loving us so much,
he is the man within this house,
and takes this role with pride,
he is a source of happiness,
he stands tall at my side,
giving me strength in many ways,
and courage to go on,
he helps me through the darker days,
I'm proud to call him son,
but how much I want for him to be,
the careless, playful child,
a spirit who can wander free,
without the pain inside.....
