Navy Dads

My Son, My Sailor, My Hero

 

Poem Written By:  Paige Robbins

September 2011

  

The years since your birth have come and gone in a hurry.

And even though you’re grown now, I still often worry.

I’ve watched you change from boy into a man,

Knowing it's one small part of God’s plan.

 

Always determined to be successful in life,

You set goals for yourself and follow them in strife.

Your unwavering devotion toward family and friends,

With love and support, your dedication never ends.

 

Joining the Navy was your childhood dream.

The pride in my heart really makes me gleam.

Serving your country inspires you in every way.

You gain from your experiences with each passing day.

 

Only God knows what the future will bring.

Your strong will and determination is certainly a good thing.

Your journey through life may take you many places.

And you will endure many challenges the world faces.

 

I’m closing this poem to say how very proud I am of you,

And you’re always in my thoughts when on the ocean blue.

You’ll soon return from this journey across the oceans and seas.

At home again with your family is soon where you’ll be.
