12 years gone..a remembrance to my son Ross

5 years ago

It gets close to that date

And I know it.

Though I’ve mastered the pain

And try not to show it,

It doesn’t stop the feeling

that makes my heart grieve

and though I’ve stopped

wearing that heart on my sleeve,

that moment in time

can arrive unannounced

and just for a while

the pain is pronounced…

it hurts and I cry

I miss him so much

to not have him here

to see, hear and touch…

his humor

his smile

his cute little grin,

my son

my boy

how his life would have been…

our life

it’s direction

is an uncharted path

I bow to it humbly

I’ve lived through it’s wrath…

And just for this time

I’ll stop and remember

The days with my son

When my heart

Was more tender…
