The tears no longer come
But the pain still lingers on.
Only God can understand how much I miss my son
Gone from this life all too soon
Leaving such sorrow behind.
He was a precious gift God loaned me for a few years
And then he left and my eyes filled with many tears.
Memories so sweet still linger on
Even though he now is gone.
The smile that would win any one with its charm
Is the smile in my mind that still lingers on.
His head on my shoulder would no longer be
Only memories but no longer his face I would see.
If he had remained on this earth
To bear the pain and struggle his life had brought
It still leaves my heart and mind with many thoughts.
About the days as a child and then as a teen
And all of the days in between.
The dreams that he shared that never came to pass
Because he left this life all to fast.
I know you are at rest now, my son
But your winning smile still lingers on
The love we shared as a family will always
Bring comfort to me as the days roll on
I will never stop missing you but I know it is true
Some day we will meet again beyond the blue.
Written in memory of my loving son who died from an overdose. I still miss you so much, my dear Phil.
I still remember how you and Faith would put your head on my shoulder and look up at me with those big brown eyes and say, “please Mom.”
Having your son, Shannon, living with us reminds us so much of you. He does not take your place because no one could; and he has independently won his place in our heart and he is his own unique, individual person. He is intelligent and has a great potential to accomplish remarkable things in this life – if he will just do it. I am looking forward to seeing you again when I reach Heaven. I know you, along with my mother and my oldest sister, are all waiting for me.
