Passed away on 9 May 2010 at the age of 4.
The time I rocked you on me knee
Was much shorter than that time should be
But inside my heart I still rock on
And treasure you as my darling son
Not a day passes when I don't think of you . . .
Daddy I love you, I hear your prayers
I sit beside your bed and stroke your hair
Holding your hand I watch you sleep
My face cuddles close against your cheek
Not a night passes where I'm not with you . . .
My son I only wish we had shared more joys
More birthday presents and Christmas toys
I feel in my life there has been an empty place
Because I could not stare into my little boy's face
There's not a morning I don't cry missing you . . .
Daddy I have seen you shed your tears
I have watched you struggle throughout these few days
Don't you realize I have always been there
God sent me in many ways . . .
In your heart you know this to be true . . .
Yes my dear , I know it's true
I have felt you in many ways
Yet I still feel cheated at losing you
At such an early age . . .
Is that wrong of me?
No dad , I understand . . .
Just let me say this . . .
Sweet daddy, my daddy whom I love and adore
I shall stand by your side forevermore
As you fight depression from taking your strength
My hands will hold you steady in place
All you need do is think my name
Or better yet sing to yourself "Our Lullaby"
The one you used to sing to me in your arms when I cried
As you start to sing, I'll join in
We will share our special song once again
But instead of it being my tears that dry
It will be your pain that will soon subside
you can always close your eyes and think of me
I will come close and embrace you . . .
My spirit, my heart, my strength live on .
Just as you daddy live on inside of me . . .
Now smile . . .
I love you!
