An Ode To My Prince

You are beautiful
Tiny, yet larger than life
A wonderful bundle
You are more than enough.

And so I kiss you often
Because soon I cannot
And so I try to carry you often
Because soon I will not.

You are my ‘shooting star’
Blazing forth in bright light…
My erudite scholar…
My dunamis; my might.

Thou art great; a legend.
Thou art a god my son.
Thou shalt be excellent until the end.
I bless you; my Aydin.

      Thank you kindly. I’m sure there’s a bit of knowledge glean-able from every literary piece. Nothing beats writing from experience I’ve noticed. Like you write… From a deep, spiritual place.

    It’s a beautiful thing, this love a father has for his son.
