My Best Man

i never imagined
that this day would come
let alone it would involve
my beloved son

the morning was crazy
with so much to do
but things calmed down
when i laid eyes on you

you said to relax
it would be okay
just remember mom
today is your day

i smiled at you and
looked into your eyes

i'll never forget
i felt such pride

when we walked down the isle
you took hold of my hand

i was not the groom
but you were my best man
