Rest in Peace, My Boy

From the start, I expected rough days
Knowing your parents and their criminal ways
I took you in as a son of my own
You were only seven weeks, when their cover was blown
I put your needs before everything, every day
You needed more love, at least I saw it that way
We giggled, we played, and we learned a little each day
How could I have known God would take you away?
Now here I sit in pain and in tears
Wishing my boy could be here through the years
Yes, my boy, although I was just your Auntie
Since the day you were born, you were like a son to me
I won't move your clothes, diapers, bottles or toys
My world is pure black, every sound has no noise
My heart barely beats inside of my chest
Because it broke into pieces as I lay you to rest
