This poem is for Cody's mom Christel, may this give you some comfort.



Last night while I was trying to sleep,

My son's voice I did hear,

I opened my eyes and looked around,

But he did not appear.


He said, "Mom, you've got to listen,

You've got to understand,

God didn't take me from you, mom,

He only took my hand.


When I called out in pain that day,

The moment that I died,

He reached down and took my hand,

And pulled me  to His side.


He pulled me up and saved me

From the misery and pain.

My body was hurt so badly,

I could never be the same.


My search is really over now,

I've found happiness within,

All the answers to my empty dreams,

And all that might have been.


I love you all and miss you so,

And I'll always be nearby.

My body's gone forever,

But my spirit will never die.


And so, you must all go on now,

And live, and understand.......

God did not take me from you,

He only took my hand."
