Matthew’s Song


Hallowell, Maine

Matthew is my hero, he died and saved us all.


Here’s Matt’s fourth grade picture
From right before he died
Matthew is my hero
He died and saved us all

Matt took the punch
That was meant for me
Can I call myself a mother
When my son died in my place

Matt’s dad said he would break my legs
He’d rage and he would scream
I knew that he might kill me
And Matthew saw it all

Matt took the punch…

I was scared to be alone
But still I chose to leave
Matthew didn’t have that choice
He died and set me free

Matt took the punch…

A feather reminds me
Reminds me of my son
I wish that I could show him
How strong I have become
