My Son, It broke my heart to lose you. But you did not go alone, A part of me went with you The day God called you home. A million times I’ve thought of you, A million times I’ve cried. If loving could have saved you, You would have never died. Forgive me lord, I’ll always weep, For my son I loved so much, But yet I could not keep. Rest Now IN PEACE WITH No PAIN MY SWEET BABY BOY.
