MY ONLY SON IS 22 years old now and his new girlfriend will NOT allow him to spend any time with me.  My heart is BROKEN. I feel alone and sad without my son. He is also my only child, I had serious medical issues so I thanked GOD every day for him.  So I miss terribly spending time with him, as I said his girlfriend will not let him be with me at all.





To my dear son Daniel:

My little boy stood in front of me 
shouting, “You’ll have to go through 
me first when he saw I was in danger.

My boy stood by me when the 
Law firm jobs crushed me into

My boy stood by me when
life took us in and out of places
of extreme hardship.

My boy stood by me many 
times in sickness and injury.

My boy stood by me, always 
assuring: “Things will get better, 

My boy stood strong by me
when our beloved dogs, Rocky and 
Brownie went to the Rainbow Bridge.

My boy stood by me when the 
deaths of my mother and brother
shut me down to nothing.

My boy big and small, always knew 
when I wanted to give up, letting me 
know he still needed me.

My boy says, “Never give up, 
Mom, there is more for you
to do in this life!”

My boy is my hero, my savior,
an inspiration that I cannot 
live without.

My last wish is for my boy to stand by me 
a little longer, in case God calls me home 
while we still need each other.

Love Mom

Your poem is so sweet. He is a hero surely... in every sense of the word. God give you the best life and protect you both, from this day to the last. Ann
