|~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.
