It has been 8,939 days since I last held you 24 years since I wrote a poem for others to read or view No one knows how big the hole can be in someones heart From the void that was left when a first born sons life would not restart Exactly 2 years and 24 hours to the day from which you were born Would be the start of my life long journey, in you I would forever mourn The cold spring water that did your life so swiftly take Was smooth as glass with not even a ripple or a wake As your mother and I sped to be there by your side It was less than 24 hours until in my arms you died The devastation of your loss nearly broke my will Nearly a Quarter Century later it haunts me even still The last time that I saw you alive at least was filled with joy It hurts so bad to never hear again "I wov you dad" from my baby boy

Some wounds take a long time to heal and yet we must transcend, surrendering to God’s will
