Birthday Wishes To My Son In Heaven

If I could have one wish in life,

That wish would have to be

That God would take away my pain

And send you back to me.

Your birthday’s here today, my son,

And I just wanted you to know

How much I deeply love you

And that I miss you so.

On days like this we should celebrate,

But for me that now proves hard,

For unlike other mothers, I cannot send

A simple birthday card.

No kisses can I give you

Or birthday gifts to buy.

Only flowers I now can give you,

Which I place down where you lie.

Two other things I send you

Are my thoughts and all my love,

So hold them close and keep them safe

In Heaven up above.

And please wait for me, my darling

Until my days are through,

And then I’ll come and spend all time

In Heaven just with you.
