"TODAY"

Today it feels like I lost a part of me
I feel like I cant go on.

Today I want to turn back the hands of time.
Turn back to the days when you were my little boy.

Today I want you here. In your room watching TV,
playing your game or standing here next to me
asking me one of those crazy questions you always ask.

Today is the day that I have to let go, let go
of your hand. You are on your way to becoming a man.

Today is the day you leave for the Marines 2-8-10.
I love and miss you.

LOVE ALWAYS YOUR MOM
