I think it’s sinking in now
That my son is dead
I know I’ve told you of his passing prior to this date
I know we all attended a service in his honor
I know I received his ashes, his remains, in a box I keep on the mantle
But, I think I’m really getting it now
How do I know?
Because all I really want to do is to be with him
And my own death seems like a small price to pay
I think when I really know for sure
I will just die
