My Son

My son, I can see so many good things in you
And here I am really honest and true.
My son, I love it when your caring heart opens wide
When I had a headache you came and sat by my side

My son, some of your talents for drawing, I have seen
You are really good at it, believe me, fantastic, I mean
My son, there are really so many good things in you.
Even so far, I have mentioned just two

My son, you have a talent for language, you do
Yes learning a language is easy for you
My son, Here’s number three, there is so much more
So much more in you, I truly adore

My son, I do understand that being 14 is quite challenging
There are so many things changing
But please my very lovely son,
Keep on bringing out the good that’s in you, please keep on.

Your loving father, Papa

Keep on bringing out the good that’s in you, ... Very loving and touching advice every parent must give. Its simplicity is its very beauty.

(cont.) you've told me he is an adopted child, and i congratulate on ap-PARENT-ly getting a 'good one, and him for apparently getting a good Papa! STRANGELY enough, for the first time IN AGES i.e. 'in a long time' i, today, on PH, used the word Papa, but at first misspelled it Pappa; i then researched online and found a precursor to Papa was a Greek word pappa! bri :)
