Baby Boy

He was my baby boy
The one full of joy
That God wanted to deploy
To heaven for him to enjoy

But he was just a teen
And this was so unforeseen
If I could only intervene
I would ask God to reconvene

Lord please take me instead
I want to be the one laying there dead
So I can gain wings to spread
And watch my boy grow into a man years ahead

Rather than being here asking why
Do I have to say my goodbye
When his life flashed by
Leaving me here to cry

For my baby had to deploy
Leaving my life with no joy
Only his memories I can enjoy
Till we meet again my sweet baby boy
