You've been gone now
for more than a year
It's been so rough
without you here.

I stayed by your side









'til I had to leave,









I really didn't want to -









but Mommy really needed to sleep.










You didn't let go that night,
but I knew it would be soon -
That's the reason I refused
to leave your room.

The tears ran down my face









as your heartbeat began to drop,









“This can't be happening; He's









too strong to lose this fight.”










I ran to get Mommy -
it was the only time we departed
& that's when you finally decided
to go up with our Father.

A year has passed without
seeing your precious face -
It's still hard,
but I accept it, because now
I know you're in a better place.
