In memory of an adult son who has gone to a place of greener pastures.
© Joshua Cintron
I’m going to miss your joyous presence, deviant smile—random acts of silliness.
What kind of tribute
would this be if I didn’t pepper my message to you with sarcasm?
But I can’t.
My heart hurts. Yours would too if you were in my shoes. “Don’t get mushy on me”,
that’s what you would say. You’re right, I won’t. I won’t get teary eyed at
the fond memories you left me with. No I want because what good are
these tears if
they can’t fall on your forehead?
Truth be told, living without you for the rest of my life, sparks the same feeling I felt
when I welcomed your precious face the day you were born—helpless.
Rest in peace my son.
