Dear Jerome


Janice Engle

You were so very brave ,my son ,
to go through all that pain
Just in hope of one more chance,
though it ended up in vain

I loved you then and I love you now ,
Though your no longer here,
I won't forget the happiness,
the sadness that we shared

GOD, loaned you to me my son ,
when you were just a babe
He needed you for something special,
no one else could take your place

I know that you are happy now,
free from the pain you bore,
I know GOD , will take care of you
till we meet at Heaven's door

From Mommy with love
may you rest in peace

dedicated to my 10 year old son
