    My heart sopping wet from tears.
    I think of the future with dread and fear.
    this is a mothers nightmare.
    I've seen him as baby
    so innocent and carefree,
    how can it be he has grown
    away from me?
    I loved and nurtured him and
    on a whim, would even go
    out on a limb for him.
    Things were going fine,
    we were on a straight line.
    Maybe I was blind and didn't
    see the signs in time.
    I refuse to give up hope.
    I won't sit and mope.
    I've got to cope.
    I prayed to God to wipe away my tears,
    cast aside my fears and turn my
    nightmares into cheer as he steers
    him from satans lair. Now he's in
    the clear, back into a loving atmosphere.

    Last night I stood and watched my son as he slept. I smiled peacefully for my prayers have been answered, he's home. I wrote this months ago when my heart was in distress, but all is at rest. I just wanted to share. Thanks:heart:

    From one mother to another...

    Thanks for sharing Coco.

    Sounds like your son knows home is where the heart is. As parents, are hearts are the homes of our children.
