This is a poem I wrote for my son, Nathaniel, while I was pregnant

I wish for you to grow up brave,
to strive for what you desire,
and to give God praise.

I wish for you to love, care, and give grace.
To know how to forgive, trust, and change a flat tire.
For you to grow up brave.

Love your life, the life He gave.
Play, read, travel, and do all life requires.
I wish for you to give God praise.

Be a doctor, a teacher, or win a race.
Build a house, a car, or a bonfire.
I wish for you to grow up brave.

I wish for you to be honest, respect others, and behave,
to push ahead, and be a fighter.
And to give God praise.

Enjoy and experience life. Live it ablaze.
Be a son, friend, and provider.
I wish for you to grow up brave,
and give God praise.
