Once More

Once More

Hold me once more
Arms of my child embrace
Once more let me see your face
Son of mine, it is you that I adore

Forever is way too long
Just let me see you once more
Your smile makes my heart soar
And your laughter is my soul’s song

Once more I would say
‘Love you with all my heart’
Death has taken and torn us apart
However, I will see you again one day©

One month, Friday, March 23, could you really have come and gone already? It has been one month since I lost a piece of my heart, my sweet 17 year old boy. His smile and laughter forever gone from this world. His wisdom beyond years, intelligence and desire to learn, snuffed out too soon. Oh, please tell me that I am in the midst of a terrible dream, nightmare, let me wake up and find you are safe in your bed. The only darkness surrounding me being the lack of the sunshine, it no longer comes to see me. But alas, it is my reality…© Mac

    GOOD POEM–LIFE IS BETTER IN FLIP-FLOPS!

  2. MY APOLOGIES—AND SYMPATHIES–AT YOUR GREAT LOSS! bUT YOU HAVE SAID AS KING DAVID SAID WHEN HE LOST A SON—THAT HE–BY THE GRACE OF GOD–WOULD SEE HIS SON AND YOU WILL SEE YOUR SON AGAIN! I TRUST I MAY MEET YOU ALL THERE, AS WELL! 🙂

  3. You’re right, forever is too long. How we wish we could travel back in time… Only He understands! May His comfort be with you always!

    • Thank u! Only through faith am I still able to move and breath.

      • Isn’t it true? I can’t imagine of what you’re going through. From your first post, it seems like your son made the decision? It would be even harder to accept that. Depression is a difficult illness. You’re fighting against it. Probably it was too hard for your son to handle. Our grieving emotion is real. I don’t think God expects you to get up and move on like King David. Take your time!

      • Yes he committed suicide. It was a long past year with multiple attempts. We did all we could for him but in the end the pain for him was too much. I know he is without pain and in the arms of Jesus now. Thank you for your kind words my friend ❤️

      • I kind of know what it means. My mom battled with Alzheimer disease and diabetes. It was so bad that the doctor asked if we wanted her foot amputated. Of course not. She passed away 6 weeks later. We were relieved that she was not in pain anymore. ❤
