Beloved Boy


I look at my boy
Eyes twinkling
Love spewing
Towards me

I am his world
I am his all
I am his rock.
Or so it may seem.

Did I tell you today?
My love, one and all.
Did I show you today?
You hold me up with your presence.
You abide by my intolerance
and defects.
You love me anyway…

Can I hug you? You ask.
Can I sit with you ?
Can I kiss your cheek?

No other words can surpass,
Those of my most beloved boy.

Beloved in spite of my self doubt.
My inconsistency.
My failure to launch,
when it is so in need.

Are you sick today?
Your query only coming
from your deepest affection.

My boy is from me,
Within me,
Beside me and always with me.

A gift undeserved, unexpected,
but nonetheless,
And well received.

My boy.


About goplayintraffic

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website,, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
