4 yr Anniversary of my son's death
For Matthew Steven Carter
The Joy and the Sorrow
There ‘s a black hole in my heart
that cannot ever be filled.
Yet, it continues to pump life-giving blood
through my arteries and veins,
because of God’s omniscient will.
In that hole, with my memories contained,
deep inside the emptiness,
is the place of this mother’s pain,
boring through the darkness,
until I see your face again.
Years come and carry each anniversary date;
there’re are two--
The day of your birth and the day of your death, dear son.
The joy and the sorrow
are both in my thoughts of you.
Today is the sorrow
Tomorrow will be the joy
Of knowing that my first born child
Is alive, it is true,
that the angels and he are rejoicing
with the Creator, our Savior.
Jesus Christ, they are worshipping You.
Matthew Carter 9/13/76-4/18/2019
