If I Could Hold You One More Time...

If I could hold you one more time, I would tell you that I love you more than life itself.
If I could hold you one more time, I would tell you what an amazing young man you are.
If I could hold you one more time, I would tell you that I am incredibly proud of you.
If I could hold you one more time, I would tell you that nothing you do, say or feel can change my love for you.
If I could hold you one more time, I would tell you that you are an awesome Dad.
If I could hold you one more time, I would tell you that you can rely on me just as you once did.
If I could hold you one more time, I would tell you that you can be anything and everything that you dream of being.
If I could hold you one more time, I would tell you that you still hold a special place in my heart.
If I could hold you one more time, I would tell you that all is forgiven.

I am still here, my son, waiting to hold you one more time... Do you think of me?

I can only imagine what a mother goes through.

Time seems to be our enemy when our prayers are not answered. There are reasons for the delay; Lessons to be taught and learned. Give GOD time, He is working.
