Little King of Sorrows


Troy's Birthday Poem (2008)


All the things I didn't say,
Have torn me up inside,
The nights I've spent in torment,
Since that tragic day you died.


But I know that you would want me,
To let that be the past,
Each day I've asked forgiveness,
To you since you have passed.


My son I am so sorry,
that my pride got in the way,
That I left both you and mommy,
I tried but couldn't stay.


Every day I longed to hold you,
That wish is now just dreams,
To know I have to wait so long,
My stength's not what it seems.


Each day I hurt so much son,
The tears come without reason,
A certain song or a child's laugh,
Make for a never changing season.


But for you I make this promise,
Cause I cannot change what's done,
But I will change these problems,
To make you proud my son.


You never met your sister,
But I know you watch her so,
watch us both and guide us,
please show us where to go.


To hell and back for both of you,
Is all my life is worth,
my son please be my beacon,
Till my time is done on Earth.



I miss you Troy.(12-16-2003 * 9-4-2005)

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
