A special one


Tuesday 16th May


I live every single day

Without my darling son

Won’t be able to see you grow old

He’s now an Angel, a special one.


Fly free

Sleep peacefully.

We love you so, so much

To the moon and back.

Love you more

And all the world.

  1. You have the consolation that your son is no longer in pain. In a way, you carry that pain for him.
    It sounds as if your grief is overwhelming at times. I’m sure, however, that your website is a way for other mothers who may have lost children to ease theirs. Not everyone is as articulate as you are.

    Tragically, there is a great deal of loss in this world. Philadelphia regularly loses children to drive-by shootings http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/real-time/Accidental-shootings-involving-children-in-Philadelphia.html

    Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) highlights the problem. Whatever the cause of loss, the pain is the same.

    • Thank you very much for your good wishes and kind praise.
      Sometimes the grief comes out of nowhere, and is all-consuming.
      I find writing about my son, my feelings, my loss, therapeutic in a way. I just want to keep remembering everything about him. I just don’t want the memories to fade.
