I am I
And he is he
I the mother
He the son.
For a while
Our paths did merge
There was love
And much laughter,
Joy and growth
In abundance too.
Then I lost him
As a son
The truck
That crushed him
Saw to that.
First I grieved
Deep and hard
I could not bear
To lose him so.
Then I found him
Still connected
Still in touch
With his Mum
Sending messages
Cheering, helping
Wrapping me
With his love
Till my smile
Shone through the tears
Till his strength
Was shared with me.
