Thank you for starting this ... I've been pretty low lately.

My son wrote the poem below. We included it at his service and it will be on his headstone someday. It so describes how I felt the first time he was placed in my arms and my yearning to keep him with me always.

Only Forever

I pulled you down from the clouds.
I had never known true perfection.
Now that you are here,
Please stay awhile.
I promise not to keep you very long,
Only forever ...

~ While the light lasts I shall remember
and in the darkness I shall not forget ~
