Poem for Norm
A mother holds her newborn son,
counts tiny fingers, a new life has begun.
The son she adores is so close with his mom,
she will always treasure and respect their strong bond.
The years pass by, her heart has a warm glow,
and she realizes just how fast kids can grow.
The worst words a parent can ever possibly hear,
are heard by Jill, it is the greatest of fears.
Her world is shattered when she learns he is gone,
being the only child she had, their love was so strong.
Jill's whole world had stopped, but she bravely pressed on,
with a fragile heart she hid the pain of her lost son.
The days pass by so slowly as she mourned her great loss,
she wants her son with her no matter the cost.
She loves her dad dearly, but wanted at last,
to be with her gentle sweet young son (her Matt).
In heaven Matt sees his mom and asks "Why are you here?"
With shining eyes she hugs him and says, "To finish raising you my dear"
She's sorry she hurt her dad, that makes her heart move.
But says,"With open arms, we'll be waiting for you!"
