Beautiful boy

April 23, 2008

Beautiful boy, not yet one

Your mommy’s joy

Your daddy’s pride

Their only son

Your smile so wide

Heart so big

Everyone loved you

In our hearts you reside

So full of life

Your mom laid you down

When she checked on you

her heart cut like a knife

Your beautiful smile

No longer there

So still so quiet

A parents worst trial

Family and friends gather

Around your parents

Your beautiful sister

who wonder if it all matters

tears flow

hugs abound

trying to make sense of

lost dreams of watching you grow

We gather together to pray

For continued faith

For comfort

Most of all for memories to not stray

Heal our hearts o lord

Hear our cry

Bring us wisdom

To serve those who have much grief stored.

Matthew 18:2-4

2And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them 3and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you(A) turn and(B) become like children, you(C) will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4(D) Whoever humbles himself like this child is the(E) greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Recently someone close to me lost their sweet little boy. In his honor I wrote the above. They are very private so I will honor them with their privacy. Please honor them and their boy with your prayers.

needless to say I don’t believe i will be able to read my favorite childrens book for quite a while .. the littlest angel

I feel that God was preparing my heart by having me write this article about helping your grieving friend and reading this series by Molly Piper regarding her loss of a child. Maybe they can help you too.
