I Love You So

If I could, I would hold you tight,
I would hug you with all my might,
I would never let you go,
My son, I love you so.

I never wanted to say goodbye,
Every day I still cry,
Why can’t you be here?
It’s so lonely without you near.

You filled my life with so much joy,
But now there is a terrible void,
What can ever fill the hole,
That has been torn into my very soul?

The anguish is almost more than I can stand,
What is my life’s plan?
I thought I was doing what I came here to do,
I found so much meaning in being the mother of you.

I pray for Spirit to enter in,
To feel God’s love from within,
And with divine wisdom to come to see,
What my soul’s purpose is now to be.

Claire Ann,

You have so many beautiful candid shots of Graham, it seems to me that he's still here. I never knew him and I hope this comment doesn't inspire any more grief for you.

I just wanted to inform you that the combination of your beautiful poetry and the photos are keep Graham's spirit alive... for me. I strangely feel connected to your family through your words.

As usual great job!
