Son on your 18th Birthday

Through 18 Years I’ve watched you grow

With pride inside my heart

I’ve walked along beside you

From the very start

But the time has come to step aside

And let you choose your path

And I think of all our special times

Each precious smile and laugh

Each childhood tear I’ve wiped away

Each new birthday cake

And I think of all the memories

We still have yet to make

As we celebrate this special day

I want to say to you

I hope your journey’s always blessed

And all your dreams come true

Remember I am always here

No matter where you roam

I am always here to listen

You are never on your own

I want to say Thank you

For being who you are

I am so very proud of you

And I know that you’ll go far
