A poem for Your Alex...

Oh happy days when you were here
And every day was so much fun
It never once occurred to me
That you would have to leave us, son

Whenever I am sad or blue
I stretch across the wall of time
To find you still within my heart
With all our memories sublime

No longer can I touch your hair
No longer see you face to face
But with the treasures in my heart
I can your memory embrace

And time is not your master now
For you can any age assume
The lanky youth you could become
Or baby fair, with heaven’s bloom

I see you racing down the hill
Or fast asleep in Daddy’s chair
Whatever age or form you take
You always seem so wondrous fair

My precious babe, with honeyed curls
My little son with blazing smile
No matter what you are today
Would surely my sad heart beguile

So, come and cheer my weary self
Come and lift my downcast heart
You are my own, my precious son
And I have loved you from the start

So, from my cherished memories
You run and walk and smile once more
To keep me company here below
Till we unite at Heaven’s door...

My soul, my heart, my prayers, my love are with you today and always
I’m so sorry I cannot be there for Alex’’s services but know how much I truly care and mourn with you. Deb
