How I wish I would have taken more time to say goodbye
I couldn't know that my yes meant you would die.
One year ago today my son everything was ok
until sometime between 2 and 3 that day.
When I answered the phone a year ago today
I didn't know that every thing had forever changed
Everything was not ok....
You my boy had gone away
...Lost in the river?
No it cant be!
Joshua my son
Come back home to me!
You are so much a part of my life
Not having you here just isn't right
Memories still fill my heart each day
Even now a whole year since you went away...
Beautiful curly hair for me to run my fingers through
Your silly voice saying..."I love you Lynnie Poo"
Funny crab walking up the stairs
Begging to go to county fairs
You liked rap on 104.7
You wanted a green mansion when you got to Heaven
Hiking and swimming, adventures and fun
your hair getting blond in the hot summersun
You hated turkey but loved honey baked ham
You were growing into such a tall handsome young man
Cub Scouts, singing, VBS,
teasing siblings and making a mess.
You love to travel and go on trips
most of the knees of your pants had big rips
The girls were starting to fall in love with you
You weren't quite sure what to do
So many memories and thoughts fill my heart
each moment of each day we are apart
Wait for me my son with our dear Lord
'til the day I join you and we receive our reward
I love you Joshua and miss you.
