Today is your birthday
I'm sorry I couldn't be with you
My heart aching

I remember the night you were born
Your first cry into this world

The joy of holding you in my arms
Looking into your eyes

You were taken away because you were sick
Tears rolling down my face

I finally got to hold you, feed you
Smiling as the nurse asked if I wanted to change the date

You are always in my heart
I will love you forever just as a mother should

You will be with me always
Remember I love you as I write this poem with tears in my eyes
Just for you my oldest son
