My son is six but walks six feet tall

“You have been blessed,” is all the doctor said to me
Six years ago.
I never knew what she meant,
but now I do, and it such a joy to see,

From the moment that our eyes first met, I was hooked,
And still you have me mesmerised,
One glance was all it took,
You made a mother out of me.

You’ve captured our hearts with your sweet imagination,
Your unceasing questions and shy reservation,
There are innumerable times I can advice you with just gentle persuasion
Of course Mama can be a bit harsh on occasion.  

Most people can’t believe you are so young,
They say you are more mature while other kids are so high strung,
I tell them it baffles me as well sometimes,
I wonder what I did to deserve such a wonderful child.

So continue to stand tall my little Daniel,
You are six today and soon 12,
Keep winning hearts, they are far more important than grades,
And remember you are worth more than gold or silver can trade.
