Dedicated to Nicholas by his mom, Jayne Ferrante who writes… “This poem holds special meaning for me, since I feel my son is always in my heart.”

“Safely Carried”

by Philippa Skinner from her book “See You Soon” which she wrote after losing her teenage son.

I carry you in my heart

Like a photo in a wallet.

You are imprinted there – not in chemicals that will fade

But in love, indelible and non-removable,

I can’t lose you or drop you or mislay you –

You are safely held forever.
