Love For My Son Poem

If something should ever happen to me, my love for my son should never go unsaid.

Never Unsaid

© Valerie Capasso
I never want this to go unsaid,
So here in this poem, is for it to be said.
There are no words to express how much you mean to me,
A son like you, I thought could never be.
Because the day you were born, I just knew,
God sent me a blessing- and that was you.
For this I thank Him everyday,
You are the true definition of a son, in everyway.
It is because of you that my life has meaning,
Becoming a mom has shown me a new sense of being.
I want you to know that you were the purpose of my life,
Out of everything I did- it was you that I did right.
Always remember that I know how much you care,
I can tell by the relationship that we share.
For a son like you there could be no other,
And whether we are together or apart,
Please do not ever forget-
You will always have a piece of my heart.

He has no clue what I have gone thru for him, not the usual..just deleted an hour worth of putting the truth out there...doesn't long as my baby is happy...just wish he understood why I am the way I's not a's an aftermath of survival...

  • My son is in the Navy and is on deployment. I miss him and worry about him being in Harm's Way. We are extremely close and he is my world. I sent this to him because he is a gift from God and I want him to know. He carries my heart & has my prayers.

  • It really touches my heart. I have a son who just turned one and I can really say that truly he gave meaning to my life. He is the best gift I have ever received in my life and I thank GOD for that wonderful and priceless gift. My son gave me all the reasons to live. I may not have all the material things in life but I am proud to say that I have my own son whose worth a millions.

  • To all you readers enjoy your sons and daughters and cherish every single moment of there lives because you never know the second they will be taken away from you. My son Patrick of 27 years was suddenly taken from me on the 31st of Oct 2010 and I just cannot get over it. He was such a wonderful boy any mother would be proud of but as I've been told God must have needed him more than me but how much I miss him. No one will ever know. God Bless you my son Patrick Daniel.

  • Hi my name is Luz Gonzalez and I have an 18 yr old son he is my only child and on May 19, 2012 my son was diagnosed with Lymphoma Burkitts Cancer stage 3 and I must say my world came tumbling down when I was told. I cried all day I would look at my son and just cry. When I was able to tell my son he also cried then I cried with him, I love my son so much he is my all. As I write this we are at the Cleveland Clinic where he is getting chemo as we speak this is a high dosage of chemo as it was 90% gone but now they found a couple of more in the back of his stomach and inside the fatty tissue of his stomach. My son has Cancer in his stomach. I would do anything and everything for my son Christopher. Thank you for letting me write about my son.

  • Wow, all of the above I read, with my heart open to each and every one of you mothers. The ones who have sons/daughters with you and to the ones who have lost their precious babies. I think you are so very brave and courageous to have somehow, by God's grace, continued to fight through life's adversities and to be so strong for others.
    My mothers has 7 sons and 2 daughters, then I had the blessings of giving birth to 3 sons. Each day, hour, minute, second I give thanks for having them and feel privileged that I they are still in my life. Women up above, I salute you and thank you for the strength and power you hold. May God bless you and your sons.

  • As I read the above emails I had to comment. First of all I came here to find a poem for my only son/child because he is going through testing next week for cancer. He is my world and we just lost his dad this Feb. My heart goes out to all the mothers that have lost their sons. I can't comprehend how hard that would be. If I lost my son I don't how I would go on but I know I would only exist but never have another happy day. We are very close. May God be with each mother that has had to give her son back to God.
