I dedicate this poem to a mother grieving the loss of her first born son. R.I.P. to Dari-yon Shorter.

~~From the moment I first held you, I made a promise that I would never let you go.
I loved from first sight more than you will ever know.
When you cried, I cried.
When you died, I died.
Just a part of me.
Because you were the heart of me.
My first born son.
My number one.
How will I go on without you?
There was so much that we still needed to do.
I forgot that we were on borrowed time.
I feel like I am about to lose my mind.
This hurt compares to nothing I have had yet to face.
How could you be gone to your final resting place?
You were just here.
Had I known I would’ve kept you near.
If I could have you back a little longer.
It wouldn’t make me any stronger
Because I know that you would have to leave me again.
But I know it’s not the end.
GOD loaned me his Angel boy.
Who filled my life with so much joy.
Now he has called him home.
Where he rightfully belongs
To watch over me and preserve my place.
Until we meet again, I shall long to see your face.
I will think of you with the most precious love
And console myself with the fact that you looking down on me from above.
With your angel wings and halo adorning your beautiful face
Protecting me while I am here in this temporary place.
Rest easy my angel in the sky.
Until we meet again, I know that your smile shines even brighter up high.
