God gave me a son

by tryinXtoXholdXmyXheadXup   Mar 19, 2007

This is not for me or about me it is for a friend of mine who well as you will know had a son!

God gave me a son

God gave me a son
To have and to hold
To raise with my wisdom
To teach to be bold

God gave me an angel
From his kingdom
Bright eyes
Bright future
My kid and I

God gave me a son
To love and to keep
To hold and to hug
To laugh with and bug

God gave me a blessing
To share with you too
He gave me my son
To play with you

God gave me my son
To raise as my own
To love with all I am
And never leave behind

God gave me a son

    What a beautiful poem Nessa! Not talking from experience, children are a doll to have! I have 6 younger siblings and two of them are 2 years old or younger. Little kids are beautiful!

    This poem is so lovely. the repetition is really powerful, but isn't irritating because the length of the poem is perfect. [ you don't often find a writer capable of doing that in my opinion ! ]
    i would say that you should change the last stanza, because you seem to have followed some sort of rhyming pattern and i was a little disappointed in the way you finished it, but the rest was really well written. good job.x

    The repeating of god gave me a son really made this whole poem stronger. well done with use of special techniques.

    5/5 David
