My Beautiful Boy

by Rachel E F Allen   Dec 8, 2004

Unplanned, a shock, the end of my life,
That did not mean that we did not want you
My beautiful boy how it kills me
To see you so cold and so blue

My hopes and my dreams all shattered
When you could not open your eyes
We have come so far together my love
Yet in this cold metal room there are no cries

To stroke your soft hair and your perfect skin
Would be heaven on earth for me
Now I’ll just have to listen to well meaning friends
Telling me you weren’t meant to be

I would have given you everything in the whole wide world
I still would if you’d just make a sound
They’re going to take you away now
To a cold box alone in the ground

In my heart my precious Jamie
You will live on forever more
And maybe one day I will find you
When it comes my time to knock on that door

So I’ll hold my heart in your mothers hands
And try to stop the ache inside
And they’ll take you away to your box in the ground
And I’ll sit by the side and cry

In loving memory of my perfect and precious son, Jamie

    Oh hun that sent shivers down my spine! I nearly cried! He will be watching over you and everything will be alright. My friend had a little girl and she died. It was heartbreaking but she's got the comfort of knowing that she'll be alright. She has photo's to look back on. Hope you are ok and thanks for the comments :)

    Very touching and totally beautiful. hmm, maybe work on the flow. The number of words you had in each line varied a bit too much so the flow got a bit messed up. Try working on that. Otherwise good poem, keep writing.
