Little Son


Poem Commentary

Inspiration never ceases when you have a tender, loving son.

Little Son

Little Son


Shining Bright

Strongest beacon in my sight

Spending moments for your might

Tender Heart

Held me constant from the start

May our hearts never be apart

Loving Gaze

Your Simple Daze

Brings me joy in every way

Gentle Touch

Innocence and such

Your tiny hands can do so much

Smiling Eyes

Warm and Dear

Makes all worries disappear

Courageous Laugh

Inciteful, happy chaff

Beckons all to see their path

Dearest One

Do you know what you’ve begun

Your restless journey in the sun

As you sleep, your breath caressing my face

I lay awake and dream in your happy space

Because of You

How my life came into view

Now I understand my soul's destiny

In you is how I came to be

Did You come to rescue me

Endless Curiosity

Sends one wandering where you’ll be

As you grow and grace the world

How your beauty will unfurl


-M. Jacobs

Beautiful, M. Jacobs. I know this feeling all too well. My youngest becomes a teenager next march. I have two poems you might enjoy. A Father's Love and The Journey. Both are for my children. Thank you for this wonderful write. TS



thank you dearly,thanks for sharing your experience and your kind and touching words.

Marsink commented on Little Son


Very beautiful and endearing for those of us with children. I recall my newborn daughter keeping us so busy as newlyweds, and thought that because she was in our lives, she was the one taking care of us, by being on that path of parenthood. Thanks for sharing.



On the exchange between a child and parent, many times I find myself realizing how important he is to me and how he needs me and this is part of the gift of being a parent, the knowing of your role and the dependance of the child on all that you do and that you depend on them, as well, in a very different way. There is a delicate balance and the happiness of the child and the parent relies on this.It is the most gratifying experience, if done appropriately.



Thanks for your words and your sharing.

Oh this is such a heart warming poem and gives me an idea of how my mother loves touching



Truly, no matter what. This is the deepest love I have ever known, barring knowing Christ and his everlasting gift.

This is a great poem celebrating the life of the young ones that we are responsible to care for. Great structure and style.



Thanks O. My Little Son has begun a new purpose in life for me.

A great and beautiful little piece Marty... It'd be hard to get more intimate with the love for a son than this... 10 all the way....



thank you so much.. that means a lot.

Poetry is what is lost in translation.
