Twenty-one years ago I created a miracle, I created my best,
I created a child unlike any of the rest.
I planned his future, I knew his path;
I knew he would bring someone a lot of love and laughs.
I thought about who to intrust with my most precious gift,
Then I looked down upon My Earth and seen your beautiful face.
That's when I knew you two were the perfect match right from the start,
I knew you would guide, protect, and love him with all your heart.
I knew my precious time with him was done,
Thats why twenty-one years ago, I gave you a son.
I was there when you first seen his beautiful face and heard him coo,
I was there when you chose the name "Michael Andrew".
I was there when you would kiss him and hug him tight,
I was there as you sang to him and rocked him to sleep at night.
I was with you when you taught him his ABC's and how to count to three,
I was with him when he would fall and scrape his knee.
I sat beside you and watched as he played little league, basketball, and football too,
I seen how proud you were, and I cheered right along with you.
I was there with you both everyday, every single moment you had,
I laughed with you through all the happy times, and cried with you through the sad.
I was there when he was scared and needed a hand to hold,
And I was helping you learn how to be brave and bold.
Although Michael's path wasn't always easy, I knew you would be there,
I knew you would take care of and comfort him, because of the amazing bond you both share.
I know you don't understand, and are asking me why,
How could I let your precious son die?
I know how much your heart aches, and I know how much you cry,
But Michael is home with me now, he has wings, he can fly.
Although he is not there, and you feel as though he's gone away,
He sits here with me in Heaven, and he too now is with you everyday.
So know that I am here and I love you,
And remember Lisa, I lost a son once too.
Michael and I will love you always, and until we all meet again,
Remember these things and keep your courage and strength, my dear sweet friend.
