The Way You Are.......

I love you my dear, just the way you are
I would not ask you to be anything more
I would not ask you to be quicker or taller,
Smarter, more charming, cuter or smaller
I don’t compare you to Charlie or Phil
Wish you could throw like Harry or Bill
In my eyes you are a bright, shining star
And I love you just the way you are

You’re a ‘man-in-the-making’, and soon you will be
A little reflection of what you hear and see
I will not ask you to be what you’re not
You’re God’s little creation…and what you are taught
The example you follow is the one you see
I don’t take it lightly as you follow me……
And I’ll love you forever, you are my shining star
Remember, I love you just the way you are

Others are waiting to take your hand
There are a couple of things you need to understand
Some will tell you that lies are truth….
Son, remember your Creator in the day of your youth
Know what He says and what His precepts are
Then you will continue to be a bright star
God’s Word will never lead you astray
Or turn you aside into temptation’s way

And if you should fail….and I know you will
Remember, God and I love you still
Sometimes we falter and sometimes we stumble
There is grace at His altar, and our slips keep us humble
You are getting so tall; soon you’ll be a man
By the grace of God, be all that you can
I do not ask for anything more
For I love you just the way you are

Love, Mother
