I ran into an old friend that I have not seen in years.
We talked for a bit and upon saying good-bye he asked me how many kids do I have?
It took me a second to answer because I was not sure what to say.
In the second it took me to answer, so many things raced across my mind...
9 days of struggle.
His empty room.
The words that came out of my mouth were true, "I have one son in heaven."
I never, not in a million years would ever have thought that I would be answering that question with that answer.
Baby Anthony, today you would have been 9 months old.
I can't help but wonder what you would have looked like and if you would be walking by now...
|-In my arms...then, now & forever-|
And I know it aches
And your heart it breaks...
