childhood poem

To get his good-night kiss he stood
Beside my chair one night
And raised an eager face to me,
A face with love alight.

And as I gathered in my arms
The son God gave to me,
I thanked the lad for being good,
and hoped he'd always be.

His little arms crept `round my neck
And then I heard him say
Four simple words I can't forget...
Four words that made me pray.

They turned a mirror on my soul,
On secrets no one knew,
They startled me, I hear them yet;
He said... "I'll be like you".
