Sweet Child of Mine

Sweet child of mine, as I lay you to rest, with yr eyes closed, I
remember all the times, I saw you sleeping. Today, I wish you could
just wake up.

Sweet child of mine, as I lay you to rest, I remember each time I bid
you goodbye. Off to school, then college. Now, forever. Hoping you'll
return in the evening.

Sweet child of mine, as I lay you to rest, I think of the dreams we
shared, all the hopes of the future. Someday, I wish they will come
true.

Sweet child of mine, as I lay you to rest, I try to find the wings
that will take you away from a land I called ours. I always asked to
spread your reach far and wide. Today, you've gone too far, I fear.

Sweet child of mine, as I lay you to rest, I try to come to terms with
not seeing you smile again. I try to grasp every memory, forcing
myself never to forget each moment we spent together, each smile,
every step we took.

Sweet child of mine, as I lay you to rest, I can't think of anything
to say to you. Just know, I love you.

Sweet child of mine, as I lay you to rest, for the last time, I
promise you, your death will not be in vain.

i can't imagine what must have made you go through such depth of emotions. hope it's not a personal loss. but if it is, i can see in these very lines that you have the strength to go on.

thanks for touching my heart.
