Well I just heard the news today

It seems my life is going to change

I closed my eyes, begin to pray

Then tears of joy stream down my face

With arms wide open

Tears streak my face as I smile down to the small bundle in my arms. His green eyes stare back at me before he yawns and slips into a peaceful slumber. My smile widens when I feel my wifes arms incircle my waist as her head rest on my shoulder.

Under the sunlight

Welcome to this place

I'll show you everything

With arms wide open

"He looks just like you." She whispers in my ear. "You think he'll grow up to be like you?" My smile falters a bit and I turn to look at her. At the moment all I can think is, 'God! How did I get some one so beautiful to fall in love with me? To give me a family of my own?'

Well I don't know if I'm ready

 To be the man I have to be

I'll take a breath, take her by my side

We stand in awe, we've created life

With arms wide open

"No. He'll grow-up with parents that love him,not abusive muggles who treat him like a slave." She pulls me closer to ease the pain of my memories. "He'll growup knowing magic exists and that he'll allways be cared for."

Under the sunlight

Welcome to this place

 I'll show you everything

 With arms wide open

Now everything has changed

I'll show you love

 I'll show you everything

With arms wide open

"I'll show him all that there is to offer in both magical and muggle worlds. And above all else,that he is loved." A tear rolls down her cheak as she leans in to kiss me. When she pulls away all I say is, "God,I love you so much Nymph!"

She scowls slightly at the nickname before looking at the clock on the wall and smiles. "Well,Har,youre about to be late for your graduation speech!"

If I had just one wish

 Only one demand

 I hope he's not like me

 I hope he understands

 That he can take this life

 And hold it by the hand

 And he can greet the world

As we make our way out our chambers, I cant help but smile at how much I have gained since I got my letter to Hogwarts seven years ago. Friends. Love. And something that I have always wanted. A family of my own.

With arms wide open...


I'm sorry if this seems rushed,but its my first Harry Potter fic so I was sure how to go about it. R&R
