I wanted to write a letter, to make myself feel better.
My son had just left home.
I took pen in hand, thought a minute, and then began.
And this is what I wrote:
Dear Chip, my son, you are the only one
Who understood my needs.
Throughout the years, with laughter and with tears
On you I have leaned.
I watched you grow, not too fast or too slow,
But at your own pace.
I saw me in you, in many things youd do
Throughout time and space.
You were so much like me and I thought wed always be
Walking side by side.
But the Lords plan was made; I knew you couldnt stay.
Our tears we didnt hide.
This day has come too soon, your song ran out of tune
And time from your clock.
My heart is breaking in two. Forever Ill miss you.
All my love the old block.
