Written for my son on h is 40th birthday




To my Son at 40


I remember ...

a precious baby

cradled in my arms,

the safest place that you could be

protected from all harm.

I remember your first steps

..then watching you run,

From the very beginning

you were a such a  special son.

Time flew by on golden wings...

school and play, being with your friends

always kind and loving,

known to all as “Gentle Ben”.


Your college days have come and gone

...still an Ole Miss  Rebel deep inside!

You’ve worked and learned life’s lessons

relying on God, your Faithful Guide.

He walks with you on your path

as you expand your course and vision,

now a husband and a father

who seeks His holy wisdom.

I watched you grow from boy to man...

we’ve shared a lot these forty years

I am so  proud of how you’ve grown

seasoned by laughter as well as tears.
