On Mothers and Sons

Recently two friends of mine lost their sons.
And a dear friend's son lost her.
A memorial event in the Mournes at the weekend brought it back to me.

For my son

She has lost her son
who did not reach
the age of Christ

While he has lost his mother
a decade short
of three score years and ten

And I -still have you.

So let us enjoy
this time
we have been given.
