My dear Andrew,
If you had not died,
I would probably be the happiest mum in the world.
You would be 23,
You most probably would have finished university.
You most probably would be doing post graduate studies.
But you died.
You made me a bereaved mum.
You also made me an author,
when I published your book.
I have become a person with empathy.
I understand other bereaved parents.
Most of all, I know it is OK to cry,
And I can tell another bereaved mum, it's ok to cry.
I miss you.
And I will not tell another mum to move on.
Because I know how hurting it it.
You are forever in my heart.
