~Gone Is The Boy~
Once he was here I was overjoyed.
I had prayed for the day,
With so much love in my heart,
Then he turned and went away.
So many feelings and thoughts were hidden,
So far away he would stay,
I knew deep down in my heart,
I could never keep him from harm's way.
Games, adventures, laughing and hugs,
He brought joy to my heart every day.
Now he is sad, fearful and lost,
He will find his way home soon I pray
Gone are the talking and sharing.
Gone are the moments spent in play.
My heart weeps for the little boy,
Who upon my lap would lay.
Now Playing: "You'll Never Walk Alone"
During a four year period, both my son and I saw every new day as a challenge.
For him -- a challenge to fit in and to find his path.
For me -- a challenge to do the right thing, for both of us, with love.

Today, he has been drug-free for more than a year and become a productive and law-abiding young man. While I have made peace within for my past actions.
God grant me the
Serenity to accept the things I cannot change ...
Courage to change the things I can
and Wisdom to know the difference.
