A Poem for William

 Tonight I wrote this poem for William...

God Bless You, My Love

God bless you tonight
As you continue to fight
How I wish I could set you free
From this illness that threatens
To shorten your life
And take you away from me

God bless your ten toes
Your small hands and your nose
There's no part of you that I don't love
You are perfect to me
My greatest gift
Given directly to me from above

God bless your sweet heart
That's worked hard from the start
To help you develop and grow
Each time that I've heard
It's quick steady beat
I've found my own heart is aglow

God bless you, my boy
My source of great joy
May you never know sorrow or pain
I will love you forever
Long beyond the goodbyes
And will yearn to be with you again
