"Loss Of a Son" by Aisha Lateefah Behlin

I know this pain has left your heart numb
The void it brings from losing a son...

A hole so big not even the universe can fill
A pain so dire no medication can kill...

His first days on earth were tears of joy
Introducing to the world your lovable baby boy...

But now your tears of joy have turned into tears of sorrow
Awaking each day knowing he wont be here tomorrow...

Sadness becomes your best friend
Happiness becomes your enemy
Even though that's not the way it's supposed to be.

To celebrate death is what we have been taught to do,
But how do you celebrate the end of the closes one to you?

Just close your eyes, take a deep breath and pray to God beyond the sky
To give you strength upon your soul for every tear you cry...

To live life the best way you can until your duties on earth are done
And that will be the day you will......

......reunite with your son.

A dedication I made to the parents of Trayvon Martin and parents who have experience the loss of a child (son or daughter)...it applies to all!!! May God bless and comfort you during this heart break until you meet again...
