You Will Never Be Gone

You took my heart the day you were born and clutched it in your tiny little hand. Lord how I loved you, my gift from God, my precious handsome little man. From an infant to a toddler, time flew past,
and with joy and awe I watched you grow. I was there to protect, love, and defend, and to teach you things you had to know. Seems like you had just barely begun to walk, and oh my goodness here you were a scout. Learning things to earn your merit badges, doing "big boy" stuff and racing all about. The next thing I knew, my scout was a teen, driving and almost through high school. Then you were off to college chasing your dreams always abiding by the golden rule. Then time stopped one night when I got that horrible call saying "Your son is gone." I nearly stopped breathing, My heart broke in two but still I knew they had to be wrong. My son is not gone and he never will be
as long as I am still here.I talk to him daily, he still lives forever in my heart.
