The Eternal Vow
This poem was inspired by a tragic local event that took place yesterday, within three miles of where I live. A twenty nine year old man shot and killed his fifty four year old mother, and then himself, in her home.
I wonder, can you hear me now,
for I have made an eternal vow.
It matters not what you have done.
You'll always be my beloved one.
When first I knew you were conceived,
the greatest blessing I've yet received,
within my heart I knew it true...
no matter what, I would always love you.
And through it all, the good and bad,
through tears and smiles, the happy, sad,
through trials and triumphs, losses, wins,
through tantrums and scowls and heart-melting grins...
There was nothing you could ever do
to change how much I do love you.
Now, this is the message I need to tell,
My Son, I still love you, and forgive you, as well...
Though you took my life, and I've passed on,
I'll love you into Infinity's dawn...
and vow to speak until your hear
that I love you, still, and I linger near,
