To My Godson

To My Godson


Modeled after Peter Meinke’s
For a writing class

This is a poem to my godson, Xyrus.
Who comes to the world,
Unpredicted. Unexpected.
You are one of them
From friends, cousins, men and women
Tasked to pick you up when the world is done
Goddaughters; godsons.
Your bright smile and round eyes
Provide laughter to sighs
Remind to the lost the wonder,
The beauty and colour
In your tears and pain
There is hope over disdain
And you whisper to my soul
That rancor is not the goal.
Because life is worth living
And life is worth loving
You are not my blood
But you are my heart
You are not mine
Yet I see you as one.
Because love crosses
Bloodlines and children’s stories.
Sit beside me to wait for the sunrise
And together, we dream of the skies.
as father
and son.

    You truly is his ever thoughtful NINONG.
    Imagine… you wrote a poem just to
    express your deepest lcare for him.
