Your Face Etched Upon My Skin

Tammy Marie Brown

I have branded myself for all to remember.
I will not hide who I am now or why.

When they look at me, they see
your face etched upon my skin.
Bold,
with your name, dates
and one immeasurable thought:
“I Miss You…Son”

I am forever changed,
nevertheless,
I will always be your mom.

Reader Feedback:
Tammy Brown´s "Your Face Etched Upon My Skin", was so beautiful and summed up exactly my thoughts about the loss of my own son, and yet I could never have put such feelings into words. Thank you.
