To My Son: I miss you on your Birthday

To My Son

Remembering:

Somewhere under all the pain,
within all those walls
Is my beautiful son!

Remember the Rain?
Remember how good it feels
as it pours down on you?

Refreshing the soul
Refreshing the innermost of our being.

I carried you with human cords
The cords were severed.
They can be repaired,
Perhaps they will never be the same.
So true! But they can be healed.

Deep within, the real Self is hidden.
scared, broken, filled with grief
and sorrow.

Each beat of your heart
Each tear from your eyes
I was there!
The beating of my heart was with you
The tears that I shed was with you.

Yes, I remember the times you
reached out and noone was there for you?
I was there, deep within calling your
name.

"For when you are weak, I am strong"
I love you!

These are words that came to me as I was praying for my son on his birthday. I just felt I needed to post them. I felt they are from the Lord as he is speaking to my heart. My heart is so broken for him lately and I can't stop hurting for him.

Linda, this is so beautiful and heartbreaking. You have so much to cope with and I greatly admire your strength. God's blessings to you as you continue to work on college admission and coping without your son.

Your words touched me deeply. I am sorry that you are hurting so much. Don't lose hope, you should have seen me when I was young. People change.

I pray the Lord to send people into his life that will get him to recovery programs. He was so bad last time we saw him that he threatened to kill us and especially the younger children. He doesn't even remember the night. It was so scary. And under all this is such a loving handsome young man who looks like Justin Timberlake.
