My Eyes 
are filled with tears 
Knowing each of the steps  
I’ve taken 
We’re steps  
Walking with you 
To the end of your 
Life’s mission.  
Your death   
was always near  
and my soul  
Understood   
The realization  
of your end 
But 
Acknowledging  
The existence  
of your beginning 
Can never be 
a plausible  
Mention  
Without understanding  
the relationship of a mother and son. 
As I look back over  
Our life together  
I am not moved  
by the lack of time 
spent 
But profoundly  
Amazed  
At what I’ve  
Become.  
Because of that 
Their something about the relationship  
between a mother and a son  
That should be noted  
With clarity, 
Acknowledged with praise 
and a keen sense of 
infinite wisdom. 
When a son 
has been raised  
to be a man 
The road  
a mother and son  
travel 
 
Will have,  
And has had 
many turns,  
twist,  
hills and valleys. 
For many  
looking at the relationship 
With their noses  
Pressed up against 
the glass 
can only see  
the distance
