Ode to Leo

Always there,
My shadow as I walk through my mind...
Following, wherever I go.

The earth here is cracked and distorted,
Yet a single red rose blooms,
The sweet smell of hope amid fumes and decay
Keeps me sure-footed as I trudge along the bay.

Guns at the ready; impending doom day,
But my heart is steady as you heel by my side,
I trust your senses and I know it'll be alright.

As long as you're always near
I'll stay here
Under your watch as twinkling stars;
The soft nudge of sun on my arm,
This is how you remind me
That I am healed by your comfort
And wonderful memories...
Forever ours.

Rest In Peace eternally beloved Leo, you will always be my baby boy. I miss you so much, but I hold onto the hope that I'll see you again someday.
