One of the most tragic and traumatic losses life can deal out to a person is the death of a son. The death of a son means the loss of more than just a precious life. It represents the loss of future experiences and future hopes. No parent is prepared for the loss of a child, and when it happens, their world is changed forever. The grief, guilt, and anguish felt are acute and lasting. Parents can find comfort in knowing that their grief and mourning are normal and that many other parents have lived through similar tragedies.
1. I Love You Son
My dear son! I miss you so much.
It keeps hurting, I can’t stop crying.
My eyes always search for you in the sky.
My heart longs for finding you in the heavens.
My dear son! I love you so much.
I feel so empty without you.
I am so scared of my future without you.
My heart longs for being around you for my safety.
My dear son! You are my angel.
I still feel that you are caring me from above.
I tell my broken heart that you are still watching me.
My heart longs for your care even from heaven.
My dear son! You are my protector.
I remember you when I feel lonely.
I talk to you when I break into pieces.
My heart longs for your support even from heaven.
My dear son! I was thinking I gave you life.
The reality is that you had given me life.
Without you and your presence, I can’t exist.
My heart longs for your company in my heart until I exist.
Please be there in my heart.
I Love You, Son!
I know that my son has passed away
But I will love him until my dying day.
So please listen to my memories every now and then
Family and friends, please allow me to talk about Kenn.
His hair was brown, his eyes were blue.
He never left without saying I love you.
He never caused us any pain,
With his life we had everything to gain.
We gained from him even in death
He brought us to God and there is no greater wealth.
Yes, for our son there could be no other
I thank God for choosing me to be his Mother.
3. In Time
Time cannot erase the sorrow and pain that I feel,
Nor can it make things better
Or force my heart to heal.
Time is now a measure of the days since you’ve been gone,
Of getting by the best I can,
And trying to be strong.
Time should mend a broken heart.
That’s what they say,
But time will never change the fact that you’ve gone away.
Bless us Lord
As we pray
You took our
Little boy home today
Please let him know
Please as we pray
How much we
Loved him every day
We loved his laugh
We loved his smile
We loved his everything
We loved our child
5. All I Know Is
All I know is…. I will always miss my Nick and long for him.
All I know is…. one minute I’m together and the next I’m falling apart.
All I know is…. my heart hurts all the time and it has never felt whole since the day he died.
All I know is…. the tears won’t stop filling up my eyes, soaking my pillows or staining my face.
All I know is…. I “Really Really” miss him.
All I know is…..it hurts ALL the time.
All I know is…..I want him back.
All I know is…..sometimes I want him so badly, that I want to go to him.
All I know is…. there is no greater ache in this world than my child dying.
All I know is…..I love him, even in death, I love him so much.
6. A Picture Of You
I only have a picture now,
A frozen piece of time,
To remind me of how it was,
When you were here, and mine.
I see your smiling eyes,
Each morning when I wake,
I talk to you, and place a kiss,
Upon your lovely face.
How much I miss you being here,
I really cannot say,
The ache is deep inside my heart,
And never goes away.
I hear it mentioned often,
That time will heal the pain,
But if I’m being honest,
I hope it will remain.
I need to feel you constantly,
To get me through the day,
I loved you so very much,
Why did you go away?
The angels came and took you,
That really wasn’t fair,
They took my one and only Son,
My future life. My heir.
If only they had asked me,
If I would take your place,
I would have done so willingly,
Leaving you this world to grace.
You should have had so many years,
To watch your life unfold,
And in the mist of this,
Watch me, your Mum grow old!
I hope you’re watching from above,
At the daily tasks I do,
And let there be no doubt at all,
I really do love you.
7. A Life Lost
Our Son isn’t home, where could he be.
It’s after midnight, and the doorbell rings.
Who could be calling, he has a key.
A man in uniform, we see him through the glass.
“Do you have a son named Philip?” he asks.
With those few words our lives forever change.
We will never be the family we were, ever again.
Almost eighteen, in the prime of his life.
A careless driver has ended what should have been,
a life full of promise, of hopes and of dreams.
Our lives must go on, what else can we do?
We know our faith in God will see us through.
He spoke to my heart, my soul and my mind.
“My precious child, He has been with me,
since the moment he died.”
8. One Year Less
There is no word, no label, no identifying moniker,
I am not a widow, not an orphan, not childless,
But one child less.
One less open laugh and little boy giggle,
One less challenging tete-a-tete;
One less artful, winking manipulation,
One less word of comfort, one less grateful hug.
One less chance to embrace a daughter;
One less new life to carry your eyes, your chin, your grin, your name,
No one word for the pain, the longing, the brevity
Of a life meant for living; an old soul meant to grow older than mine;
Would there be any one price too high, any sacrifice too great,
For one more moment, one more breath, one more warm touch;
I grasp desperately and sense the closeness –
the ONE just at the fingertips of my heart and mind,
Only to realize again and again and again,
