I will remember you 
And give a sad smile.

I will not forget 
Not even for a while.

Every detail will haunt. 
But all before will shine.

You, my beautiful boy, 
Your body failed you.

We knew this was to be 
But always wished.

We went through more 
Than most, you and me.

We were always family, 
To that we will stay.

My child holds your name, 
To your surprise.

Your eyes spoke of unsaid words 
The first time you held him.

I despair without you, 
So much of me is from you.

All the things you gave me 
I promise to cherish.

You had your wish. 
You will be remembered.

Not just by me but all.
You will continue to shine through the winter.

You know me more than I know myself. 
And even in that last moment.

You remind me. 
And love me.

“Wipe away them tears. 
Never say goodbye, 
Always say hello”
