I sit here to write down my thoughts to you my child,
In my feeble attempt to include you in my mundane life.
I know you will never read the words I pen,
Yet, my love makes me sit down and do this often.
Even though we met briefly before you were taken,
I still harbor the belief that someday I will awaken;
To your memories not bringing me so much agony
Your loss has been my life’s greatest tragedy.
I wish we had had longer a spell together,
Before you were snatched away from me, forever.
But, one day we shall meet again, I am sure.
That day we will chat of what we lost & more.
I know that I pen a letter that I will never post
For where you reside is only the abode of the lost.
Dear departed boy, rest always in peaceful slumber
I will always love you my child, all my love, your mother.
