Funeral Poem for Family

My son Jason died too young at the age of 35. He was taken from me way too soon. In my eyes he will always be my little boy. I miss him so much.

From The Very First Moment

© Patty Davis
From the very first moment you were laid in my arms
I wanted to protect you from all harms
You were so small and precious, the perfect gift from above
And in an instant I fell in love

Your first day of school broke my heart
Because I knew that we would be apart
But you were fine and made new friends
And you came home with that beautiful grin

I watched you grow from a boy to a man
And it all seemed like the perfect plan
But time seemed to slip by so fast
Oh how I wish I could relive the past

It would be awesome to be able to see
That little boy that was so carefree
But I know I can not go back in time
To those days that were so sublime

I wanted and would have given you the moon
But you were taken from me way too soon
Your shining smile I would love to see
If only I could have you here with me

I was so honored to be your mother
You were a son like no other
Your brothers and sister and I agree
Heaven is where you have to be

We will miss you and think of you with love
And know that you are with your dad above
We know we have special angels up there
Looking down on us with love and care

I love you Jay!
