The Son I Could Not Keep
(In Loving Memory Son Poems)

My arms still ache to hold you
The tears still fall like rain ..
My eye’s just long to see you
And hear you laugh again.

I look normal on the outside
the hurt is hidden deep ..
For the son I love and long for
For the son I could not keep.

I knew little that morning that God
was going to call your name ..
In life I loved you dearly
in death, I do the same.

It broke my heart to lose you
tho’ you did not go alone ..
For part of me went with you
the day God called you home.

You left me with precious memories
You love is still my guide ..
Although I can not see you, you
are always at my side.

Our family chain is broken now, and
our hearts are very sore ..
But as God calls us one by one
the chain will link once more.
