I see you, my Bar Mitzva boy,
And wonder how to bottle joy
To keep it for posterity.
Do you know what you mean to me?
Fulfillment of my deepest dreams,
And highest hopes. My boy! It seems
The years flew, swift as butterflies.
And through the coming what’s and why’s,
May all your drive, sincerity,
Your pull to spirituality,
Remain with you, through battles won
And mountains climbed. I love you, son.

This is a gift I would call: “More worth than any other fancy gifts.”

Brocha, I am amazed by your poems time and time again! I love this couplet: Remain with you, through battles won/And mountains climbed. I love you, son.
Also, the second line. You say I see you, my Bar Mitzvah boy, and then what is the thought that comes to your mind? And wonder how to bottle joy. I love it. So pure and simple…

Yes, what a gift! And if you have more boys, may you experience – and so beautifully and lovingly express- special sentiments for each.

What better way to express your emotions on such a day than with a poem? Love!

Mazel Tov! I am not a mother, but I have a sense of what it means to truly love someone to an unyielding extent by reading your poem. Congratulations on the milestone and you should have nachas although reading the line “do you know what you mean to me, fulfillment of my deepest dreams…” I can see that you already do.

Love it! That’s one lucky Bar Mitzva Boy, you’ve got there! Lots of Nachas! 🙂
