Dedicated to my son Kurtis Ozra VanFleet
by Twinkle VanFleet
I LONGED FOR HIS PRESENCE- I DREAMED HE WAS HERE,
I COULD FEEL HIS SPIRIT- FOR I KNEW HE WAS NEAR.
I CRIED IN THE NIGHT- MY BODY ACHING AND OVERWHELMED,
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FEELING- FOR HIS HOPE THAT I HELD.
I NEEDED HIS COMFORT AND ALL THE LOVE HE WOULD GIVE-
HE WOULD BE THE DIFFERENCE- IN THIS WORLD THAT WE LIVE.
RUMOR WAS I DIDNT DESERVE HIM, I NEEDED TO TAKE CARE OF WHAT I HAD-
NEVER WAS MY HEART SO HURT- BROKEN AND SO SAD.
I CLOSED MY EYES AND HEARD HIM- MY MOMMY, PLEASE DONT CRY-
I AM THE ONE YOU LONGED FOR, MY WINGS HAVE LEARNED TO FLY.
A VOICE SAID, HE’S ALWAYS LOVED YOU, SO YOU WILL BE THE ONE-
I GAVE YOU WHAT YOU ASK FOR, I BLESSED YOU WITH A SON!
