Dear Son,

Today I visited your gave
As I have done so many times before
I had the strongest urge to lie down beside you
Close my eyes to wake no more

I can’t stop this pain inside of me
It rips my heart into
My every waking moment
Are memories of you

I ask myself over and over
Was there more that I could have done
I would have given my life
To spared yours, my son

I thought of at least a hundred things
That maybe we should have tried
All the if’s and and’s floating in my head
The questions won’t subside

This grief I feel
Descends within my soul
My tears, they fall so often
Without you my hearts not whole

Why do things happen this way?
Things our hearts can’t comprehend
Things that tarnish our worlds
Things that bring sorrow without end
Some say it will get easier
With time and much prayer
I say they can’t know
This burden that I bare

It wasn’t suppose to end this way
It goes against natures design
A childhood ripped away
Long before his time

Each night that I lay my head down
I pray to the Lord above
To let me have a precious dream
To let me feel your love

Though it be just a dream
At least within its sight
I could tell you how much you’re loved
And I could hold you oh so tight

It would be a brief moment of sanity
And when it would sadly end
I would awaken to this nightmare
And pray for a dream again.

Please know that I miss you
And love you more than words can display
You’ll always live within my heart
Until I’m with you again some day.
