My Son

As a babe, my child

The apple of my eye

Take heed, be strong!

A babe I held

A youth you’ll become

In no time, your own path to tread

Take heart, my child

Take heed, be strong!

As a man, my child

Do not forget, what you have been taught

Your footsteps firm, your kindness supply

For in your days, kindness returns

Do not forget my child

Take heed, be strong!

A man you’ve become

A master of your own destiny
