Tyler David Jones

October 5, 1992 to September 18, 2009

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,

When I look at your beautiful face.

I talk to you and place a kiss,

On your photo in my space.

 

How much I miss you being here,

I really cannot say,

The ache is deep inside my heart,

And 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.

 

The angels came and took you,

Nine years ago September eighteenth,

Without a warning or a sign,

Just a poof, and you were gone.

 

You should have had so many years,

To watch your life unfold,

And in the midst of this,

Watch me, your Mom, grow old!

 

I love and miss you Tyler,

Mom (and Dad, Lindsey, and Austin, too)
