An original and beautiful heart wrenching poem, very close to my heart. For little Benny.

My son he was taken before it was time,

So much potential, I was proud he was mine.

My only job was to keep you safe,

I failed you my son, and your blind faith.

 

 

My beautiful baby, my reason to be,

Has left me blinded by misery.

I just can't go on, another day more,

Without you my Benny, come back I implore.

 

Now before me he lies, in a box made of wood,

His place would I gladly take, if only I could.

Seeing your lips, that will never again smile,

Just like your Father's, who will NEVER reconcile.

 

 

His face still so graceful, just 3 years old,

His skin is now darker, clammy and cold.

With my lips on your forehead, I turn out the light,

and for once and for all son, I bid you good night.
