Happy Birthday

Today you are 24 years old, I ask myself what you would be like this is a dark day for me one that always holds a great deal of pain. I wonder if you would be finished with college now or if you would have joined the military and are fighting in a war that you dont believe in. These are some of the things that I wonder as I celebrate your birthday without you. I do not cry anymore at least but the pain of your loss is still running deep. To see you grow up was my dream now i just wish I had that moment back so I could have held you in my arms one time and said good bye to you before they took you away. I imagine your smile in my mind kind of crooked and full of playfulness and I seen your eyes beautiful almond shaped the color of soft green moss, I think and hope that you would look more like me than your father but I would be able to see him in your smile and your eyes when you looked at me. My arms ache with the knowlege that they will never hold you never know the gentle touch of your soft little hands. Happy Birthday my sweet boy I miss you everyday and think of you just as often, I will see you again I know when my journey on this planet is done. I love you always even with my last breath, your mother!

24th Birthday

Life is full of contrition but are we at all contrite in the world we live in? the slow stroking hands of time slide slowly moving past us as we wonder where it goes as time passes us so slow, wow your birthday is coming up you are gonna be 24 this year. My little baby who I never got to hold or see laugh, the crystal clear of your eyes problabaly like  mine. Your hair definently a cross between his straight and my curly with smooth skin I picure on your face with his angular nose and full mascaline lips that remind me of him. The old woman told him about you when he was 14 but he didnt believe it. July is sneaking up on me so quickly that I am not even sure how to batte the tears that I know are going to come. I just wish that he could cry with me as I cry missing you in my arms, he pretends it doesnt matter, he wont tell his wife becasue she would think  I want him back, I have set a goal for my self bay, one year, it will take me one year to feel good about myself again and then i am going to see him. For you baby I hope that he tells his wife when it is all said and done. Until then I count down the days until the day you were born ~ Mommy~

My Little Angel

I stand today with the world changing around me my heart still aches today just as it did on the day that you left my life. Twenty one years have passed since the day you left my life and it still hurts to know that you are not a part of my life. I look at pictures of your father and your brothers and sister and I wonder what kind of a brother would you have been? would you have loved them and looked out for them like a good big brother, would you have had a relationship with your biological father as well as your adopted father? would you have laughed at your mother for being so silly about having you in her life. when I close my eyes I see you still with your dark hair and brown eyes and I wonder if any part of you would look like me? Would your father have wanted you had you survived would he have been a part of your life even though he was not a part of mine. I miss you my little angel everyday I think about you and wonder how much we could have shared with you.
