My Precious son...

Two years ago today a part of my heart was broken as my much loved son Charlie passed away.
I am scheduling this post as I know I would be unable to write this through a blur of tears. I want to share a few photos of my 'cheeky Charlie buckets' and also a poem that was given to us in the days following his death, that means so much to as the words are just a perfect way to describe how Charlie felt. Please be warned if you are a an emotional wreck like me who can howl her way through films then you may need a tissue.
This is my way paying tribute to a very special boy who was sent here for a reason and was loved by many people.

Dont be Sad without me

I know your heart feels empty,
the pain seem hard to bear,
I know how much you miss me,
And I wish I was still there.

But dont be sad without me,
I dont want you to cry,
I never really left you,
And we never said goodbye.

My body wouldnt let me,
do the things that children do,
I didnt get to live the life,
that you wanted me to.

I am free from pain now,
And although I couldnt stay,
know that I am happy,
and run around and play

Cherish all the memories,
but dont let time stand still.
I'll always be beside you,
And know I always will

You know the day will come,
and you will see me again,
for now I'll live within your heart
and its there I will remain

So dont be sad without me,
for Im with you every day
And although you cannot see me,
I'm never far away

We  miss you so much Charlie buckets

Oh Kat, the poem is just so moving - and yes I'm sitting here in tears.

I can't even begin to understand the pain you are going through, but I do truly feel for you. It must be horrible to loose a child - I know parents who have and they say the pain never goes away it just diminishes over time.

It looks like your Charlie buckets was a right cheeky chappy and must have brought you so much joy in his life. Maybe that's a thought to hold onto?

Thinking of you,
