This poem was my son's favorite. My son was mowed down by a Coach USA Bus driver operating a NJ Transit bus Wednesday July 18, 2012. The bus was speeding as his back wheel jumped the handicap curb dragged my son 50 to 100 feet to his death. The bus was not charged with his death. He was set free. I am fighting for justice for my son Deshon Johnson. You can Google his name Deshon Johnson's petition on change.org.
I like to dedicate this poem to my only child Deshon Johnson.
Draped in my affection safe and sound
protecting you from things that might
get you down.
Hurling through life’s obstacles may be tough
to get around, but my maternal spiritual guidance
will not leave you confound.
It will build you words of wisdom
that will be profound, it will help you get out of
any negative rebounds.
My prayers of peace
will resound through your soul
So take my heartfelt expressions
and treasure them every day.
Then you will see my advice
would not lead you astray.
You are a precious gift from the heavenly sky
and my unconditional love for you
will never die.
When you live your life
on trial and error, keep in mind
my motherly devotion for you is forever.
No matter what, I will always be here for you with
my eternal love, regardless; if I am on earth or in the
With Love, from your mother!
