Clayton, My Son

Made once of the earth,
And now long since buried there,
You lived up to your given name.*

Mortal though you be,
Long you have waited in Heaven
Your soul to be with me.**

Clayton, my son,
I shall someday go to Thee.

2 Samuel 12:21-23

*Clayton means "to be mortal"
**I shall go to him, but he shall
not return to me
