Tell Me

You feel there are no words -
What can you say?
I know. I'm glad you are here.
And a touch is nice.
But I need your words too.

Tell me you loved my son if you did.
Tell me you thought he was bright,
Witty, handsome, good hearted
You knew him in a way I did not.
Tell me.

Tell me of some fond memory
Of you and my child together.
I need all the good memories
Of him I can gather up now -
Even second hand ones.

Tell me you will miss him -
That I'm not the only one.
Your words will make me cry,
But your silence hurts more.
Tell me.

As for man, his days are like grass;he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more... but we will remember! Gone, but not forgotten ~ forever in our hearts...
