Aiden’s tears

I’ll never get to see you play ball.
I’ll never see you grow up at all.
I’ll never hear your first words
Or hear you cry when you hit the floor.
I won’t have that “Father-son talk”
Or rejoice when you learn how to walk.

But at least I got to hold you tight,
To see your face and say goodnight.
Though I did not know your embrace
Or have you near for very long,
I said, “Good Bye”
And my heart sang its song.

Now my child, in Christ I repose.
Rest on, I’ll see you soon
‘Cause God is merciful and just.
When my time has passed and eternity nears
Then, oh then, I’ll quench your tears
