To My Son

Sleep my angel,  you've no more fears,
no more demons, no more tears.
You gave of your heart to all your friends
now it's time for your heart to mend.

You'll be with us always, in our hearts
'till our time comes and we depart
To where you'll be waiting with open arms
 a great big smile and all your charms.

 

Though we may cry for the loss we have here,
we'll remind ourselves you're always near.
Watching our journey as we go along
living our lives and writing our own song.

So sleep tight, baby boy, and give a kiss to your Dad
Tell him I love him and I'll try not to be sad.
When I lay down at night, I'll think of the past
and I'll dream of two angels that are happy at last.
