This poem was written for a friend who lost her only son. I wrote this poem because I could see her pain in her eyes even though she didn't speak of how broken her heart felt inside.

"A Tearful Good-bye To My Only Son"

Heaven called my son's name and,
He closed his eyes in death.
But in the distant shadows of darkness,
I know he saw me as I wept.

How do a mother say, "Good-bye," to her only,
Son? What words she use to say, for such a,
Tearful and sorrowful, "Good-bye?" In words,
Her heart spoke as she cried and prayed.

My heart now forever burden with grief, my son.
I know you can feel my heavy heart as it tries to speak.
On that day you left me, forever restrained within,
A broken-heart of grief.

Those were the only words to use as her broken heart,
Spoke while she wept.
