Illustrated poetry--copyrighted art of my son and me--as a memoir to my only son, Gregory Douglas Turner, Aug. 8, 1969-Dec. 3, 1992. His murderer (a love triangle) is doing 20 years-LIFE in the Ohio State Prison for the most violent murder up to that time ('92).
******************


Firstborn

 There is something special, unique
about the firstborn. You seek
to provide their every need.
We protect loved ones in deeds.
Loved before you were born, after,
despite your death, all disasters.
I’m with you wherever you are.
Love lingers on, takes us far.
Close enough to kiss;
loving you, can’t miss
when feeling like this.
Murder tore two hearts
asunder … one lived.
 
There is such peace—special, unique—
about the firstborn … ‘tis sweet.
Heaven, God, placed you within me,
so perfect for our family.
Loved before you were born, after,
despite trials, we shared laughter.
I breech walls for us, son
to kiss, embrace you … have fun.
Love lingers, a mist,
each wet touch, a kiss.
Between us exists
a love bound by hearts
asunder … you lived!

A tragic loss but the one silver lining it the love you and your son shared which could not be taken away.
