I was ever so proud of my little boy

It was his first day of pre-school

I walked him to school that first day

And he held my hand the whole way

We walked quiet and sad

A precious little boy and his loving mom

Into the pre-school I led

But I almost cried when he looked at me and said,

“Mommy please don’t leave

Don’t leave me here alone

I’ll miss you terribly if you leave

And what if I need you, can’t you please stay?”

“My precious son please don’t cry

You’ll be okay so wipe your eyes

You have our extraordinary memories in your loving heart

We’re still together even when we’re apart.”

 

I sat upfront on his beautiful wedding day

And cried as my son walked away

Later in the night I watched him dance

I sat waiting for my chance

The band began to play our song

Mother and son danced along

He looked at me and saw a tear

Then he leaned and whispered into my ear,

“Mama, I have to leave

I hate to see you here by yourself

I’ll surely miss you when I leave.”

“My precious son, I’ll be okay

I’ll love you forever for you are my son

I have our extraordinary memories in my heart

We’re always together even though we’re apart.”

 

He came in my room and kissed me on my forehead

Then sat beside my hospital bed

I took his hand and squeezed it tight

And wished I had the strength to keep fighting

We sat there quiet and sad

A son and his dying mom

I saw the tears he was trying to hide

He looked at me and began to cry,

“Mama, please don’t leave me  

Don’t leave me here in this world alone

I’ll miss you when you go

I still need you, will you please stay?”

“My precious son, I love you more than words can say

I really want to stay but I can’t

I’ll always be in your heart

We’re always together even though we’re apart”
