A Parent's Heart

When you feel like breaking down or crashing in,
Who do you turn to, to forgive your sin?
When you cried your lonely tears,
Who will be there to fight your fears?
And when it feels like no one would understand,
Who was there to hold your hand?

There are people whom you can't replace,
They're the ones who gave you your face.
They'll love you through thick and thin,
They show you the light from deep within.
And if by chance, you happen to die,
They'll be the ones who will really cry.

You see, my friend, there's no one who can love you more,
Than your very own parents, that's for sure.
Always remember that this is true,
That wherever you go, your parents will be there for you.

My oldest son passed away on 12/01/2013. He had heart problems. His heart stopped and he passed away in his sleep. I am struggling with his death. It caused me to be diagnosed with PTSD and angina as well as depression! I would just like to honor him. He was a 25 year old father to his 5 year old son at the time. I miss my son dearly. He will never get to see his son to grow up and get married and become a father himself.
