To My Son,Charlie.
It's sad to say,but on that day,I felt as though my life...
Was not worth living anymore,there was panic,grief and strife.
But,I was so very young back then,and I had no idea...
The thought of being a Mother to you,just filled me with so much fear.
I tired to weigh,the pro's and con's,and how my life would be,
I was so confused and scared my Son,back then I could'nt see.
But over the years of seeing you grow,into such a special child,
I came to realise ,my precious,my thoughts,I had let run wild...
For you have come to grow and be,some-one,on whom I can depend,
To be a Son,a wonderful child,and a very special friend.
