poem written for my son ....
"A Mother's Undying Love" by Patty Palmer
If a mother's love could heal you
You never would be ill.
My love's deeper than the ocean
And higher than any hill.

From the minute I first saw you
My heart was yours to keep.
I couldn't get enough of you
I'd just stand and watch you sleep.

A blonde hair blue-eyed four year old
With mischief in his eye.
The first time you called me "mommy"
I'll admit it made me cry.

Your little hand fit perfectly
When you'd put yours in mine
Together we could face the world
No mountain we could not climb.

As you grew into a gentleman
How you made me proud!
You were one in a million.
Standing out in any crowd.

Now here I am, years-long past
Again, watching you sleep.
Thoughts of our life together
Memories that are mine to keep.

I pray one day the time will come
When your body will be at rest
When the Lord comes to take you home
You know He only takes the best.

You'll be happy and healthy again
As you pass through Heaven's gates.
No more sickness, no more pain
A new life for you awaits!

Though I'm sad and shed a tear
Because you aren't around
But, then I'll smile and celebrate
The new life that you have found!

I know that you will always be
Watching me from Heaven above
Know that now and forever
You'll always have your mother's love!

Author Notes
We adopted our son when he was four years old. Huntington's Disease was rampant in his biological family so when we adopted him we knew there was a possibly a fifty=fifty chance that he would have the disease. It usually doesn't show symptoms until later in life. In his biological family, all had it early in life. It's a very nasty disease. The brain is literally dying, losing all motor skills eventually death. He was 34 years old when he passed away. He had lost control of all bodily functions, including the ability to swallow. I had promised him that I wouldn't allow the doctors to put a feeding tube for eating. He didn't want to be kept alive just to keep getting sicker. He could have changed his mind at any time, but he did not.
