My Little Son

                                                   My Little Son

My little son came to me
And put me on top of the World
How proud I was to be Daddy
As I beamed from chin to chin
Holding you in my lap
Why did you leave me?
In the darkness of the night
Far away in to the unknown
Before I could take you home
Fourteen summers have gone by
With long weary winters
Since you have left me alone
In the darkness of the night

Very difficult to rise above that pain….only God can give strength to bear this loss

Your poems speak of that loss, I just referred to in my previous comment on your other poem. It is indeed sad. The loss, the constant pain, the haunting memories, unfathomable, but yet one has to draw an inner strength and continue to live, accepting His will with forbearance.
