Loves me more
My friend would visit you often
Surrogate child as both yours were overseas
You spoke of your son, as you often did.
My friend said to you “I think you love him more than you love her.”
You paused, then replied, quietly,
“I think he loves me more.”
He did indeed love you with all his heart
Gentle, good-humored and kind, he put you at ease.
I was not as good at letting you know
How much I loved you.
