When your son means so much to you and you need to tell him just how you feel.
I Thought of Someone Today
By Teresa Blakely

Looking back, I see a small hand in mine.
Your blue eyes looking up at me.
I'm wondering, what kind of man you'll become?
As you hand me your treasure, a small rock...
I Thought of Someone Today

I have seen the man you have become a husband, father, son and soldier.
You have decided to be like so many of your ancestors before you.
For the love of your family and country.
You give your life to protect it.

That cost is with every breath you take.
The freedom everyone cherishes so much.
When so many have taken that freedom for granted.
I know that cost is so very high.

Now I see a small hand in yours.
Your blue eyes looking down into mine.
You whisper in my ear as you hug me goodbye,
You say to me, Mom everything's going to be alright.

As you hand me a small rock to remind me, of days past.
The sacrifices that you make to protect our freedom are not in vain.
I pray for your safe return and those who walk with you.
I Thought of Someone Today....
