A poem to my son, Franky.
Baby boy when I first saw you,
I understood the meaning of love.
To look into your eyes and see,
the treasure God has foretold.
Holding you for the first time
was the best feeling ever.
Knowing you were all mine,
motivated me to be so much better.
Child you are like a star.
A royal priesthood set apart
from the start of the world
Let all you’ll ever be, rise up…
and glorify the Lord.
When I saw your tiny hands,
I realized how fragile your were.
When you first opened your eyes
I saw the heavens open up.
As you grow up
You captivate my heart each and everyday
the more time I spend with you
the more I see you live God’s way.
What a gift from God you are,
what a privilege you are mine.
What an honor to raise a godly man,
Son be a blessing to everyone you can.
My advise to you my love…
Love the Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength.
Let your walk match your talk,
evangelize the world,
seek the Lord’s face everyday,
love your neighbor as yourself
and live life, only God’s way!
I love you sweetheart, you are one of the greatest treasures the Lord has entrusted me with. Please follow
closely the Lord’s footsteps, give Him your heart, obey His teachings and share His love and light
everywhere you go my love.
“Be just like Jesus”.
I love you very much!
