My baby has turned sixteen
six foot tall and looking all lean
I don't look old enough to have a lad that old
oh ok then I'll look in a mirror and watch my wrinkles unfold
It only seems yesterday when I held him in my arms
those twinkly eyes and all his charms
He looked at his dad as if to say ' oh yeah I've heard you'
you look parent-like excuse me while I poo!!
Now he's more grown up than me
and common sense with a capital C
He grunts and moans from time to time
but that's normal at his age not a crime
He's in training for fully fledged manhood
a big bloke where a toddler once stood
The Power Rangers have left to make way for tech
and Telebubbies have been dumped for episodes of Star Trek
My work nurturing a child is almost done
I'm so proud of who he has become
There is something forever to be true.........he will always be my son
and I will always be his mum
