You Made Me Son

How can I be with you gone

Eight years now how can I be

You gave me heartbeat and breath

And you gave me heart

*

How can I be with you gone

Forever is too long how can I be

You gave me stride and backbone

And you gave me strength

*

How can I be with you gone

Beyond my touch how can I be

You gave me life and reason

And you made me son

*

For my mother, born Leona Patricia Clark, who died December 19, 2001
