I wonder if there will ever be a time
When he can just be with me?
When I am enjoying a moment in time
A sunset, a 2 year old being adorable, just a moment...any moment
That I want to share with him
Will there ever be a day
When I don't feel the pain ?
the tightening of my chest,
the constricting of my throat
or the painful pricking of the tears that want to come,
Will there ever come a day that he can just be with me?
Who would you be at 20? What kind of man would you be? Kind and caring I know. But would you still have your sharp wit, your view of the world that always gave me pause for thought?
Oh dear boy, I miss you so. And I say it no where but here and in my heart.
I'll like you for always.
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be.
cmarie, I want to let you know that I am thinking of you. I know you miss Liam. I will always listen to you. I know Liam without knowing him. I will drink up any version of your loss....any rugged or poignant moment you care to share. Over time, your responses to the broken hearts here have been beautiful - arenas where I have not been game to tread, you have taken in your stride.
cali....I am a little all over the place....I have missed your son's anniversary. I'm sorry to not have been in touch, that I was unaware. I acknowledge that it was a hard time this year, to feel the loss of your boy. Your words of comfort and support make me a very still, awed witness. I have read much of late about the loss of an only child. Now that grief is a constant, containable, I am able to better see this...I am speechless in type....but this is not the end of it.
Oh I wish.
Please take care. Liam, you have some dreams to visit.
If nothing else, give refuge to those in need.
