        A Note to My Son
If, I could only take a few days back from the time
in that proverbial bottle, and spend them once again
 with you… fishing at Carter’s lakes, laughing
and talking about people, time and places we once knew.
Oh, why, oh why must I still cry!
Gone are our days of sunshine
Gone are our days of laughter
Gone are our days of mutual
 love and enjoyment
You were suddenly taken from me
and for some unknown reason I remain,
living without you leaves me in great pain
My sun is about to set, and just maybe
we will once again meet on the road to
the promised land.
Johnnie my son, my joy and my best friend!
I will love you forever… and will miss you until I die
Just a note from your old friend and loving Dad.
Jackie R. Kays
