For The Very First Time

for the very first time
My dearest Joseph
My little boy
I have loved you forever
Always will
I have always known you
Forever will
But I just met you
For the first time
Your little heart beats
Your eyes roam, searching
So much you’ll see
So much more you’ll feel
But I just met you
For the first time
You love me so much
I love you
So many smiles to come
Many hugs
Yes I just met you
For the first time
You are my longing
You are my tomorrow
You will go where I cannot
Yet I will be with you
Always
And I just met you
For the first time
You are life forward
You are dreams not yet dreamt
You are promise
You are all that will be
And I just met you
For the first time
I give you my present
I give you my past
I have seen all
Done so much
But you just met me
For the first time
I have cried for you
And I have hurt
So you have fewer tears
Little pain
Yet you just met me
For the very first time
Many lives have toiled
To make yours better
Many have struggled
So you smile in the Sun
You will be all that can be
You are all there is
And my life is complete
Because we just met
For the very first time
