Francis Lloyd: ODE TO MY SON

Ode To My Son

The day you were born,I will always remember.
That day being Monday 12th of December.
You came into this world at 8:53
Instantly, I was told that you looked like me.
When you were born, you weighed 7lbs 2oz.
And when asked your name, I replied "Jordan Bradley Francis".

You are so young,but very alert and bright.
At times you're a horror, and keep me up late at night.
You make my life, my world a happy place,
When you wake up each morning and greet me with your smiling face.

When you're older, there's so many things that we can do.
I only wish that I could make this world a better place for you.
This is the first of many to come.
Of odes and poems to you, my dear son

written 13/12/94



Francis Lloyd
