Thank you for leaving me your son.
He brings me life, as once you did for him.
Although I cannot hope to salve his grief,
Nor fill his cup of joy back to the brim,
Know your flame of love has been passed on.

Your memory will help my love along,
Out of pain his happiness to win
Upon the sweet green fields of my belief.
