This son of mine
of which I'm so proud
came in this life with joy
I could not believe how it made me feel
when they said that it's a boy
I held him close onto my breast
and said I will love you ever more
I'll charish each moment of my life
for you I do adore
I watched each step that my son took
and caught him when he fell
I taught him the things that I was taught
and he learned them oh so well
he went through times where I had some thoughts
that I may have failed my task
but now he's grown and I can see that
he's a great young man at last
I don't worry about his choices
for I know he'll do the right thing
he has shown me that he's a gentle man
and honor is what he 'll bring
so as he leaves this house of mine
to enter the world on his own
I want him to know I love him
and I'm the proudest man I've known

son of mine
this is nice and sincere, it would have been nicer if you'd tried to put some rhyme in it, but it's good. you had a spelling mistake, it's cherish not charish.
