One thousand days


Tuesday 5th December


One thousand days and empty nights

As though someone turned out the lights

We didn’t know it was close to the end

We really thought you were on the mend


No longer we’ll hear the sound of laughter

You didn’t have that ‘Happy ever after’

Emptiness is all that remains

Since you broke free from those mortal chains


I tried so hard to save you that night

But you slipped away without a fight

Our darling boy in heaven above

We are sending to you so much love
