I know you are sad mum
And I am too,
But this is the journey
For me and you
Our tears are filled with sadness
With all the heartache we’ve been through,
But these will change to loving tears
As we remember what we would do
I live on in your memories mum
These will never fade,
From the first time that you changed my bum
To all the games we played
You filled my life with so much fun
And taught me right from wrong.
For this I thank you deeply and
Its helping me move along
As I look upon you
My heart is filled with pride,
As you help other people
On this rollercoaster ride
But there is no harm in closing the door
When you feel you can’t cope anymore.
But always remember
When these days are here
I am still with you mum
You hold me dear
I know all you want is a bug squeezy cuddle
I promise you mummy, we will have that cuddle
And we will never need to let go,
It is going to be the squeeziest hug
That people will ever know
The future is uncertain mummy
But one thing is true,
You are keeping me safe within
Whilst I wait for you here.
I hope every parent that has lost child can take as much comfort from this poem as I did. And I also hope that every parent out there appreciates that little bit more the cuddle that you get from your child tonight as not everyone is as fortunate as you.
I miss you Jack.
