I know you’re safe and sound

The Journey of My Left Foot (whilst remembering my son)

Sunday 28th August

My darling Angel son

Been thinking of you today

Always on my mind

And forever in my heart.

The memories will never fade

Such a big personality

Full of fun and mischief

Always keeping us on our toes.

So, nighty night sweetheart

Lay your head upon the clouds

Way up there in heaven

I know you’re safe and sound.

Love you forever

xxxxxx

Grey and misty today
