This is for my son Jon who was loved as much as anyone could ever be loved.
To my son
Life is so cruel and unfair when it tears the heart in two
And there's nothing in this world compared to the pain of losing you.
Of all the special gifts in life
be they great or small
To have had you as my son
was the greatest gift of all
Special times, your special face,
My special son, just cant be replaced
With my heart torn so deep, and my whisper low
I miss you son=And love you so."

If I could glimpse the heavens, if I could have a view
Of all its glorious wonders, I would only search for you.
I would listen for your laughter, it was music to my ears
To gaze into your hazel eyes is what I've missed all these years.
If I was granted a look at the smile that’d melt my heart
I'd hold that gift within my heart, through the time we’ll be apart.
Everywhere my footsteps lead, I search for you for signs
Sometimes they come and then they're gone, was it only in my mind?
Has so much time actually passed, can it really be
It still seems as it was yesterday, that you were torn from me.
But I love you so much and miss you, more than I can say
And I would give just anything to hold you again one day.
I pray that you can hear my words and know my very thoughts
Wherever my lifes journey takes me, please know I've not forgot…

To Jon

I sit alone in such dark despair.
I cry my silent tears,
My heart is shattered into little pieces.
The silence ringing my ears.

The darkness sometimes makes me scared,
with shadows climbing walls.
I think I hear your footsteps,
coming down the hall.

And the loneliness engulfs me,
It takes my breath away,
This is the pattern of my life,
Since the day you went away.

I had no hint, I had no idea,
Of what was going to be,
You were gone so suddenly,
You were torn from me.

Till we're together again..


I love you & miss you so Jon,
mum

I still search for you in crowds,
In empty fields in soaring clouds,
In city lights in passing cars,
On winding roads and wishing stars...

I love you & miss you more every day that passes, if that's possible. There's such a huge void in my life , all our lives, without you and your sweet smile and twinkling hazel eyes. I look forward to the day we can be reunited and be together forevermore.
I know I'm late wishing you a happy birthday it's hard to when you're not here, I wish it any way.
