The Garden We Needed
Under the willow tree...
The scar remains to this day
It reminds me of you
He was a beautiful boy
I could not have loved him more if I had given him life myself
I knew him as a child
I knew him as a man
I knew him as a father
He was my boy
He was a jokester, his smile lit up the room
Standing in our kitchen... dancing, laughing...
doing the sprinkler, chain saw, lumberjack.
We had a wonderful, laughing time when he visited
Midnight swims in the pond
Adam was a beautiful person, caring and loving, he was a precious human being
He owned a piece of my heart
His untimely death takes with him a piece of my own
A needle ended it all
I have traveled a lifetime with Adam, from child to man.
I was always there when he needed me. Through good and bad, right and wrong, he found a safe haven here in my home, in my my heart.
Rest in peace my precious boy. I will love you forever, and you I'll see you on the other side
