My Beloved Son Russ


My beloved son, I love you so
you're gone from me now
but I want you to know
I'll think of you forever
when the winds blow
when the stars come out at night
when the sun shines so bright
you were such a sweet boy and a fine man
your life was a struggle and now it's over
take care my son and be at peace
death is but a sweet release.

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
