Thristina Woodhams – For my Dallas Allen
When I look into my son’s eyes, I see how the world was meant to be. I see the character that God laid out just for him. In his eyes, I am the woman I want to be and I fulfill the purpose I was born to. When I hear my son’s laughter I feel that purpose in action. When I am the reason for his laughter I know I am fulfilling my life’s destiny and my truth. Dallas has now and always will be the greatest light of my life. I can only feel loved by God and blessed by his universe to have been given the title of mommy. When he was a little baby, just small enough to fit in the corner of my elbow. I would catch myself looking down at him. Tucked so snug and happy in my arms there fast sleep. I would whisper promises to him and beautiful thank yous to God for picking me. I would kiss his eyelids and pray that no hurt, harm, or sickness would ever touch him. I would ask God that if there ever came a time for one of those things to happen, he would spare my baby and set me in his place. When I look at Dallas I see greatness. I see the future and I know that there is still promise for his generation. May god always grant me the way to find the will and mind to carry on as a strong passionate leader in my son’s life. May I always do right to guide him, and protect him from the things he does not yet need to see? May the world receive its calm and be still while my baby grows into a man. May only love to touch his skin and happiness touch his heart. For all of this, I will Pray in every spare second my soul can find… I love you Dallas…Always & Forever!
