FOR MY SON
Although we seem so far apart
Son, you are always in my heart
You filled my life with so much joy
To me you will always be my precious boy,
A little while shall pass and then
We will see each other once-again.
Loved, remembered and held so dear
In my heart and mind Son.......
You are always near....
