    If u was only here
    to feel da love
    ever so real

    hear the words i pose
    unto u today

    o'my tyme has past
    but this pain & hurt
    still last
    the last whisper
    of us together
    was a moment of tyme
    as ur smile took a shine
    today son ya birthday

    if u was only here
    it's been almost a year
    when we parted
    your children i now have
    to hold and cherish
    and u memories that last
    to day ya birthday
    o' how it would be
    to see & feel the lovin thrill
    but to day i sit in chill
    as tears rapidy roll
    my body turn cold in
    the thought of u

    our bond not broken
    just taken til my day

    i lone to speak one last tyme
    to make my heart shine
    my first born
    my oldest son
    so young and free
    why was death to be
    now i only weep in tears
    from the yesteryear :crying:

    I pose a sad face
    no one can trace
    the tracks of my tears
    no one can feel this pain
    that stain my heart
    when today i should be of joy
    of da birth of my boy
    i lay in self destruction
    of sadness:(

    i so shall visit u today
    my soul , ur spirit
    at the place which u lay
    i'll be long side ya
    someday
    but for now u rest well
    til my journey unto thou father's place
    and caress ya warm face u almost made
    23 why did u have to leave me !
    if u was only here......


    another sad day i face in the life i so live
    JULY 14th 1980 ~to~ AUGUST 29th 2002
    R.I.P
    son:( :crying: :cry: :(

    I close my eyes and share this day with your son. I open my heart and feel your pain for this precious one.

    hurt no more you beautiful soul
    your baby has crossed over from out of this cold

    love him always in your thoughts and heart
    for the body is gone but his spirit is not

    hold his seeds and look in their eyes
    see what I mean? your baby is definitly alive.

    my prayers go out to you!

    The memoir
    of your oldest son,
    the thought will live forever
    I feel the love of your son
    And how you do miss him
    the bond you made in this life
    will guide you in the other
    the young one that is of his seed
    is bless to have you near them
    the last thought you have of your son
    is a smile like sunshine
    a wonderful thought full of love
    will warm your heart forever
    i feel the hurt in your heart
    and how you do miss him
    i cry to my brother,
    and my pray are with ya.
    Peace
