This poem was written for the father of my child, Daniel Drewer he died suddenly with a heartattack six months ago. I was with him ten years ago for eight years and we were still very good friends. Someone who knew me better than I knew myself and still


June 27th, the phone call, the news
Oh How I wish it wasn't true.
No Not Daniel, it can't be real
How is my poor baby going to feel.

He got out of the car and ran to me,
Heartbreak in your child's eye like that,
Is something I pray you never see!

As a mother you shelter your child from all pain,
But how do I turn his heart's light on again??
For he was his daddy, his idol, his best friend,
Dan your boy's heart is broken,
Will it ever mend?

Thirteen years he kept you in his sight.
Now all my son can do is hold the memories tight.
I once thought a part of jack that went with you
Was lost forever and was no use.
I now realize he never lost part of his soul.
Jack simply shared it with you to keep you both whole.

Every day I wake up and have the same fight,
"Dan Is gone" NO this can not be right!!
I look into my sons eyes and I know its true,
Oh Dan how are we ever going to live without you?????
