The following poem comes from Karen McCombs, a mother who faced the loss of her son, to a devastating type of loss--murder.
I see your smile and feel your embrace.
I hear the whisper of love in the wind
And I know that you are close to me again.
But soon the sun comes the earth to reclaim.
As the days come and go and the world moves on,
I know you're still here, you'll never be gone.
We cried as you left for an unknown land.
But Heaven rejoiced as you came into sight,
For your soul was a diamond, shining so bright!
