My Son John

Today is a day that
touches my heart
I remember a birth
as you came to me
Although you are gone
from your Mother’s touch
your spirit is always near for
My Son, I do know your heart
I still shed my saddened tears
because you're not here in body
but, these are my own private
moments of grief for a Mother
never accepts in her heart
any reason why her child
has left her side…
I love you, Johnny
Happy Birthday from Mom

Dedicated to my Son
