My heart still beats for love of him although he’s left this place.
Mind replay moments of his life, new memories leave no trace.
I reach for him during rest thinking it has all been a bad dream,
But when my waking thoughts come back I realize and scream.
I sang him songs within the womb and four years followed suit,
Twinkle-Twinkle, ABC’s, You Are My Sunshine sung in tune.
The music has left my voice and hollow sounds lament,
I now sing songs of silence to the life that you should have.
My arms have never felt so empty and so heavy all at once.
I embrace the day you blessed my life as God welcomed me a son.
I mourn the day God took you home and left me without one.
I am still your mother dear no matter how far you may be.
The only difference now my love, is now you watch over me.
