Always a coffee drinker, I was not after the taste
so much, but the much needed drug.

My son, my baby boy that life turned into a man
much too soon, took time off work one day,
showing up with gift in hand - a cup of coffee,

a cup of that really really good much too expensive
for a momma working to make ends meet coffee.

One taste and my mouth was in heaven...
oh my...I was obviously thinking...coffee this good
should be sinful; his eyes glowed with the pleasure
of my delight.

We grew up within a smile shortage and so
to even the scales, God gifted him with a smile
contagious and my Chris always found ways
to spread it.

Last year at twenty-nine, my baby left this earth
and for all the time that I am chained to this earth,
Novemberís days will black as coffee be, but coffee
will forever hold his smiling memory.

Then drink up, my friend... and enjoy every smile. *S*

This touches me so much... reminds me of how he remembered and celebrated you with the little things that felt so big to the heart.

Beautiful work...

JellyGirl~
It's often difficult for me to read these pieces without tears ... so I can just imagine the difficulty for you in penning them~

If sharing helps (and I believe that it does) ... know that as you share these feelings with those of us who love you ... you give us a tender look into the depth of a mother's loss~

Love you~

i feel this down to my soul...
and it could not be more beautifully expressed....
i know those "Novembers" of my own life,
a pain shared...

and my friendship extended to you in a huge hug

thank you both, and muted, yes I understood from toe's poem that you also have a loss that you are dealing with, sending hugs back...

Jellybeans, Chris, I am sure would have enjoyed your words, and the smile you leave us with in the end.  Thanks for sharing this cup with us.

Such a sad story

Wonderful to have a smell that will always
be around, that reminds you of your
dear child


Blessings to you Jelly Beans

Thank You for sharing this

It is a terrible thing to love that which death can touch, hard to live without taking the risk, harder still to untangle the feelings to serve them for our understanding.

I salute you.
