Matthew My Darling Son

It was Sunday ten years ago
When you left me.
How was I to know?
How I wish you didn’t have to go,
Matthew, my darling son.

The laughter that I used to hear,
Now it’s gone, gone so far away.
And the pain of losing you
Is harder that I can bare.

I am sorry that I wasn’t there
When you needed to say goodbye.
Yet I know you are watching me,
Far from the sky.

The trembles from the rain and the wind,
Make me feel you on Earth, again.
How I wish that I could hold you close,
And tell you how much I care.

As I walk this lonely path,
And I search for someone to care,
In my mind we are all as one,
Matthew, my darling son.

I miss your touch.
I miss your smile.
But most of all
I miss you, Matthew.
