The man you've become.

When did it happen, my Son,
that in the blink of my eye
all those years have gone by
and my little boy is gone
leaving me to look at
the man you've become?

Though a boy still, in years
I can see but a trace
of the boy in your face
and it brings me to tears
to witness
the man you've become.

My Son, when did it take place
that you've grown up so fast?
The boy became a man at last,
this tender maturity edged on your face
as you smile at me - I'm so proud of
the man you've become.
