My Life Without You My Son, Nick Taylor (May 13, 1987- January 10, 2010)

by Kimberly Ann Mays
(Greenwood, LA)

Those whom pass away will never die.
They live another life in Heaven, far above the sky.
They will never feel the same as they once did while here.
They will never cry again. In heaven there are no tears.
They can't hurt any longer and no longer feel our pain.
What they once felt here, they will never feel again.
If somehow they are able, and can see us from up there.
Everything they see and know is not the same as here.
The life that God has made them and allowed His Son to give.
Is not the life they knew while here, and not the one we live.
Everything is taken once they've been restored.
The life they have without us now, is the one I'm walking toward.
Yes! We miss our loved one, and want our lives just like before.
It's hard to live now knowing, that we want be with them here anymore.
We, the ones they left, are the ones that must try and live on.
When you lose someone you love, your heart feels empty once they're gone.
You still live somewhere, a place far from me.
When will I be with you again? How long will it be?
Now that I am here, and you have gone away,
my life is not complete without you here each day.
What part of me went with you, or did it just die?
Who am I without you? How will I get by?
Will I ever see the day when my life feels something more?
Will I ever feel anything as I once did before?
Will this pain ever end and the sadness disappear?
Will I ever have a life again without you being here?
I ask all these questions, but it's still too soon to know.
It's only been two years since the day you had to go.
This could take a lifetime, and how my life will be.
It doesn't really matter, someday it all will end.
My life will be everything when I'm with you once again.
I will have no more sadness, and my pain will go away.
The life I'll have in Heaven will be different from today.
Once the day comes, and God sends for me,
I'll be with you again my son, and with me, you will be.
For now, I must wait. It's not my time to go.
I'll love you and I'll miss you more than you will know!
I love you my precious boy! Mom
