Until Later Son

Until later son we part ways, though understanding isn't there
And although you're in a better place, I still wish you were here
I didn't hear you cry or feed you, or see you grow to say my name
No eyes to gaze deep into. No bumps, no cuts, no bandaids

Until later son I've wondered, who you'd look more like in time.
To me you'll always be beautiful, but I still don't know how to say goodbye
No easy words to comfort this empty heart. Just shattered dreams, so much confusion.
Needing laughter and joy, one smile. Oh I wish my heart could beat just once for you.

Until later son be pleased to know, you're not forgotten, only missed
And I'm sure it pains you to see me cry. But please, for me, perk up those tiny lips
This journey brings pain and loneliness, but also brings me joy
So now I step up saying until later son. But soon a hello to my beautiful boy
