My Dearest Son.......

My Dearest son,
Look at what you've become,
a man like me.... taking on the misery
of the world at large....but for you
it's always been twice as hard,

Because you've struggled since you were a boy,
with disabilities that stole most joy,
fate has dealt you such a tragic card...
Bullied, often mocked as a "Retard."

Chorus-

Life put stumbling blocks
on the road you walk,
but we'll both be there to catch you,
we're at your beck and call
every time you fall,
cause you know how much we love you,
Through your O.C.D.- high anxiety
and depression you will rise,
as a son we're forever proud of
in a world full of cruel eyes.

We remember your tiny, cherub face
peeking out of the bassinet,
the newest member of the human race,
we hadn't gotten to know yet,

As a toddler, our sweet laughing child,
was full of innocence, carefree and wild,
you had so many ways to make us smile,
that we never will forget....

Bridge-

You were a heavenly prize
and your bright blue eyes
knew a childhood of sunny days,
till thunderclouds appeared,
bringing you pain and fear,
back when you were in fifth grade.

Chorus-

Life put stumbling blocks
on the road you walk,
but we'll both be there to catch you,
we're at your beck and call
every time you fall,
cause you know how much we love you,
Through your O.C.D.- high anxiety
and depression you will rise,
as a son we're forever proud of
in a world full of cruel eyes.

We know they've put you in a place,
your control factors cannot embrace,
but your Strong and Pure and we are more than sure,
there's no suffering you can't face...

You're where the doctors say you need to be,
till you reach that point of recovery,
where they restore the best that you can be
and end the worst eternally.

Chorus-

Cause Life put stumbling blocks
on the road you walk,
but we'll both be there to catch you,
we're at your beck and call
every time you fall,
cause you know how much "We love you,"
Through your O.C.D.- high anxiety
and depression you will rise,
as a son we're forever proud of
in a world full of cruel eyes.
to a son who will rise above them all
and come back home to our grateful sighs.........

MFB,

You have aptly expressed the endless expanse of a parents heart for their child. Your loyalty and pride shine through for a boy who wrestles with his world every day - but never alone because you are in his corner and always there.

Your boy is beautiful and blessed to have a Dad like you. Loved lingering on the many pictures of your dear son.

God bless you and bless you more for supporting, giving and loving this blessed child.

Mekenzie
