IN LOVING MEMORY OF MY SON JAMES
WHO LOST HIS LIFE DUE TO A MOTOCYCLE ACCIDENT
He was a typical boy growing up. An angel at times and a devil at others, but he
was still a very special boy to me. When they called and told me he was hurt, all
I could do was pray that God would not take him home.
There is never a day goes by that I don't think of you. I miss you so much and
you have left an empty spot in my heart. I try to reason with myself as to why God
needed you more than I did. There were days I hated everyone for losing you and
God for taking you.
James, I know there were reasons you were taken so young and I guess I'll never
understand them, until we meet again on the other side and then we can talk.
I love you so much son and wish you were here with me and the rest of your brothers
I will always Love you,
and I will never forget you.
To all the people out there who lost a child.
You know our minds are really too small to understand why God does this to us,
but there is a reason why he picks out our children, Guess they are as special
to God, as they are to us, and he needs those special angels...
Lent for a While
I'll lend you for a little time,
A child of mine. he said,
For you to love while he lives.
And mourn when he is dead.
It may be four or seven years
Or twenty-two or eighty three.
But will you until I call him back,
Take care of him for me.
He'll bring you charms to gladden you
And should his stay be brief
You'll have his lovely memories
As solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay
Since all from Earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there
I wish this child to learn.
I've looked the wide world over.
In search of teachers true
and from the crowds that throng life's path
I have selected YOU.
Now will you give him all your love
And not think the labour vain
Nor hate me when I call him back
To take him home again.
Sent from one parent to another that knows the hurt never leaves. But in our hurt our love shines through.
