My Boy

My boy
  
I hope you always climb the trees
And play in the dirt  
I hope you always chase the bees  
And find joy splashing in the creek  
I hope you always laugh as you try to catch the bugs  
And I hope being outside will always be something you love  
   
I hope you always ride a bike  
A skate board too  
Or maybe a four wheeler  
Anything that has wheels will do  
I hope these things always bring joy to you  
   
I hope you always enjoy fishing  
And skipping rocks along the water  
Or in the woods with a gun  
Or shooting a bow and arrow  
   
May you always enjoy jumping in a pile of leaves in the fall  
And take the time to pick the flower, or take the leaf from the trees in the spring  
Sometimes we find joy in the simplest things  
   
On summer vacation while you are at the beach    
I hope you always run along the shoreline and    
crash into waves  
Then stare out in the distance as far as you can see  
Where it looks as if the water and sky meet  
   
Always play in the rain, and in the winters snow  
Enjoy nature, wherever you go  
   
Make time to see the sun rise and sunset  
And be outside every chance you get    
   
I hope you never lose your excitement for being out doors    
Even when you're grown up  
I hope you never lose your love for outside  
   
My boy
