1: Never Unsaid © Valerie Capasso I never want this to go unsaid, So here in this poem, is for it to be said. There are no words to express how much you mean to me, A son like you, I thought could never be. Because the day you were born, I just knew, God sent me a blessing- and that was you. For this I thank Him everyday, You are the true definition of a son, in every way. It is because of you that my life has meaning, Becoming a mom has shown me a new sense of being. I want you to know that you were the purpose of my life, Out of everything I did- it was you that I did right. Always remember that I know how much you care, I can tell by the relationship that we share. For a son like you there could be no other, And whether we are together or apart, Please do not ever forget- You will always have a piece of my heart.
