My Dear Son, Ray
I cried when you passed away,
I still cry today.
Although I loved you dearly
I couldn’t make you stay.
Your golden heart stopped beating,
You took your last breath.
God broke my heart to prove to me
He only takes the best. Now spread your wings
And fly, for Heaven waits to see your face.
The love we have for you will never fade. Your memories in our hearts will forever stay. You my son, will guide us to a better day. We are honored to have been chosen as your parents and you as our son. In your hands our hearts will lay. Don’t be scared for Heaven is your palace to dance. Keep playing your piano for your music is one to celebrate. Mommy, Daddy and Emilia will always be your biggest fans. We love you, Baby Ray.
