Talented Tuesday...My son's last song

Alex, 2010
Miss You.
I'm really gonna miss you
Now I'm driving away
I hope that when I hold you
It'll be okay
On my way out of state
I'm counting the cars
Hoping to get my wish for you
Out of the stars
I hope you're having fun
And I hope you're laughing loud
No matter where you are
I can see hearts in the clouds
When you say 'hi'
I say 'hey cutie pie!'
My heart jumps in circles
Cuz I don't wanna say good-bye
When I hug you
It means I love you
When I leave
I'm gonna miss you
So hug me now
While you still can
And please don't stop
Till I'm an old, old man.

My son passed away in August 2011 and this is the last song he wrote and recorded. By clicking the link in the song title you can hear his last recording. We're blessed that he left notebooks full of song lyrics and several recordings of his music.

  1. Oh, Jennie....my heart goes out to you and your family. My son died due to a car accident in December, 2010, so I know something of your grief and pain -- and how helpful and comforting it is to be surrounded by things (and people) that mattered to them. Blessings and love to you all.

  2. thank you Sharon. I'll remember you in my prayers too.

  3. You and your son have touched my heart.

  4. Jennie, thanks for sharing something so personal. Your son was obviously very special and insightful. Take good care.
