Sun my Son: We salute our Sons – #10 of NaPoMo

Don’t count me out
Please don’t count me out

Thats what I imagined his tiny voice saying from his tiny mouth
Fighting for his life, with only hours of experience being in this world
But still he found a reason to smile

Love me anyway

That’s what I read in his smile
Love me despite my flaws
Love me if I’m not as smart as you wished
or as tall as you’d hoped
or as creative as you dreamed

I heard him
I felt him

I didn’t give birth to him…
But don’t tell my heart
She doesn’t know
And don’t tell his
he doesn’t know
We somehow love each other as though we’ve shared a lifetime

And I smiled
Hoping he would read my promise

I will never count you out my Sun
