I have had a collection of kids coming and going through my house because they are homeless. One has stayed, one has followed through. One has dreams

 I am Old;
                but young again;
I have a son.
                I never new a kid could make me young.

Now, I have real purpose;
                to give my son the life that he would never know;
Because he has given me a life I never knew.

To care for a person, without regard
                 to what life brings, no matter how hard.

I see the future I want for him:
I will fight to the death, 
                  Any who challenges,

I will claw to survive;
                   to see him alive.

I have love, that doesn't have bounds:
                    because he calls me Dad.
