Our Own Son Or Chosen One

Our own son, our chosen one 
Praise, honor, and glory we had for you 
 Memories of so long ago we saw in you 
 A young boy saying a final goodbye 
Still brings a tear to this one’s eyes 
With that one simple gesture you seemed to say 
 That hope had not died that dark day
 Our boy grew up and was no longer John John 
 With the charm and charisma of his father, but was always Jackie’s son 
 You linked us to a magical time 
 Your legacy was to follow the family line 
And now they say we’ve lost you too 
 Oh dear Lord how can this be true 
 We prayed and hoped for a miracle come
 But alas fate had claimed another Kennedy young 
Our own son, our chosen one 
 Rest peacefully now with Jackie, Bobby and John
