Sometimes I catch a glimpse,
In softened waves of blue
My child, my heart  …when I see a smile
I can’t help but think of you

Sometimes these  waves fill oceans.
And feelings string on every shore
A collections of  each memory
And every way I wish for more

Sometimes I watch for  answers
Because each day I call to you
I ask for faith and courage
And  strength …to help me through

Sometimes I ask for bravery
Like dolphins  in the deep
Because time moves oh so slowly
And some times the road is  steep

Sometimes I want to scream
This was not what I had  planned
Why you ever suffered
A mom can’t understand

Sometimes I  hear your laughter
And remember you at play
But My Child I always miss  you
Not sometimes, but everyday

  1. You are all in my thoughts today (and everyday). I’m so sorry you guys had to go through the loss of your child.
