My Son in Heaven
They say there is a reason, they say time will heal,
neither time or reason Will change the way I feel.
Gone are the days we used to share, but in my heart you’re always there. The gates of memories will never close,
I will miss you more than anybody knows,
Love and miss you every day till we meet again always and forever.
