“For My Son Niall on His 18th Birthday”

To my son, on his 18th birthday,
I love you more than words can say.
So here is a wish from me to you,
May you be blessed in all you do.

No matter the troubles or the joy,
You’ll always be my baby boy.
No matter the struggles in your race,
Always remember you’re in His embrace.

Never forget no matter where you are,
No matter how close or how far,
You are loved beyond all measure,
And that to God and me, you’re a treasure.

You are special and you do matter,
Even if all your hopes shatter.
You have love and you have grace,
No matter the degree of any mistakes.

I love you and so does your Lord.
May you walk with Him in full accord.
And no matter where you may roam,
In God’s heart there’s always a home!
