Son

Matthew Lucas

(1989 – 2003)



God given.

Born beautiful.



Developed, excelled,

loved, laughed,



teased, cried.

young he died.



Others pleased.

His life eased



from his own dreams.

Quick, without screams.



Brought us pride 

with grades and colours. 



Lauded, praised.

The bar he raised.



He is gone.

He is here.



In spirit.

In cheer.



Only joy.

Angel boy.

I didn't know, Bcj... Commenting on my story yesterday, you said: 'My baby was also an M.' and the use of the past simple struck me. Then I found this beautiful, touching tribute here...<br />
<br />
love and peace to you

Thanks, Miss Q.

I feel a lot of compassion for you and quintesse as well as my friends charmerende and nedkelly1. (all losing sons)<br />
Im so very grateful that my younger stupidity did not put my own parents throught this.<br />
I wish you all the best in your trying time :) Your story is beautifully written.

I am stricken with grief and sorrow for you, reading this for the first time. I'm sad too now on this special day. I too have lost a child, and have a tenuous grasp on another one. I will do as you do, I will remember the joy and the love.<br />
My prayers are offered this day for you and for him, an angel and a proud dad.

Thanks CC and bliss<br />
