My Darling Sebastian
There are times when the world is a difficult place
and it feels like everything brings me down.
I wish I could just fly away at moments like these
and no longer suffer and drown.
But when I least expect it, the weight I feel lifts
and gone are the clouds of blue.
My pain subsides, the hurt suddenly stops
because I lay my gaze upon you.
I watch you with wonder and sheer amazement,
All your infant charms and mischievous beguiling
The way your little hand grabs onto mine so sweetly,
and then suddenly I cannot stop smiling.
When you wrap your tiny arms around my neck
and giggle a sweet and silly laugh,
you breathe life into my fragile heart
and bring me to God’s intended path.
You bring me joy, you bring me peace,
you bring me a world I never knew there was
with love and light, where everything’s right,
and that is all simply because
you are pure innocence and goodness, my pride and joy,
and my angel all wrapped up in one.
I thank you for choosing me, for all that you are,
and for being my darling son.
I love you, Sebastian!
