I’m losing my mind with every
tick of the time
I keep on shedding the tears
of sorrow
As i can tell you I do not look
forward to the tomorrows
Lots of fathers are lucky fellows
many people haven’t felt the pain I feel
Then there are parents who have
been down this road
I ask them to help me through this time
Because at any given time anyone
can lose a son
Just know this is the pain you
can not run from
So know that we all love and miss you
