I am not much of a poet, but I thought tonight I would try my hand. And yes, it rhymes. I hope you like it.
As you sleep I watch you smile and think of days gone by
I think of times I was your world and silently begin to cry
I cry for times that have long passed and will never come again
I cry for the pain you put me through and it seems it has no end.
I smile through my tears as I think on things from a happier day
When you would smile and take my hand, I thought we’d stay that way.
I know that your life is changing, I know that you must go
But how I long to hold you and tell you that I love you so.
I know that I have loved you with every piece of me
I know that someday you will stop and you will see
When that day comes and you look back and no longer am I here
I hope you will have made amends and you will shed no tear
I have loved you since day one and even when you were unkind
I have never wanted anything but happiness for you to find
If I am gone when you look back, sweet boy do not fret
I do not love you any less please do not have regrets
I know the things that you do now that break my heart in two
Will be the things you will regret in a year or two
Know that I will always love you and always will be here
Even when I am gone my love will always be near
As you sleep I pray that you will one day find your way
Until that time, I will mend my heart as I wait for you and pray you’ll be okay.
