Heaven Holds You Now

Tribute To My Son

Walking this


through grief


shadows passed

in confusion unknown

Saints and martyrs

have battled


some still

hold sessions

to see me in hell

Yet deep through

this walk

I'll hold my head high

For dignity

is never destroyed

in gossip and lies.

The winds will still

blow whispers

of love

through the trees

capture memories with

spirits surrounding me

guiding a tender soul

through years

a bit lost

from seeing you go

Lighting many candles for you

head bowed in prayer

knowing I'll find peace

whether smiling

or shedding a tear

I love you Shaun

born by love

died in vain.

No longer can

you feel

misery from


earthly pain.

Sometimes it's very hard to respond to a poem of such intense feeling, but - well done.

My grief continues; it's undescribable in words - I am touched that you read this, and commented. He was my hero and lived a short life of 29 years, but did more than some do in an entire lifetime. He saved lives every day from the time he was 16 and up. He was a 9/11 First Responder and had the courage deep inside to do the job he was called to do.

My heart aches, the tears still flow, but I am moving each day through the journey learning more and becoming a better person in life.

Yes, it was written from the heart perhaps not in professional poetic form but the sentiments still hold true - Working on my 4th year come August 6th 2011.

God bless you - I am never alone - when I walk with faith as Jesus my Savior holding my hand step by step.
