Only A Picture

I only have a picture now,
A frozen piece of time,
To remind me of how it was,
When you were here, and mine.

I see your smiling eyes,
Each morning when I woke,
I talked to you, and place a kiss,
Upon your lovely face.

How much I miss you being here,
I really can not say,
The ache is deep inside my heart,
That never goes away.

I hear it mentioned often,
That time will heal the pain,
But if I'm being honest,
I hope it will remain.

I need to feel you constantly,
To get me through the days,
I loved you so very much,
Why did they have to take you away?

The angels came and took you,
That really wasn't fair,
They took my Son,
Alot of Happiness,
So many thoughts to do nothing but join you or run,
If only they had asked me,
If I would take your place,
I would have done so willingly, Leaving you this world to grace.

You should have had so many years,
To watch your life unfold,
And in the mist of this,
Watch me, your mom grow old!
I hope your watching from above,
All the daily tasks I do,
And let there be no doubt at all,
I really do with all my heart truly love you.
