a year has passed …

April 14, 2009

It will be a year ago on the 17th of April that my friend’s son left this earth and departed for heaven to play with his grandmother, uncle and Jesus in Heaven.  He is sorely missed.  I felt it was appropriate to share a revision of a poem I wrote honoring him a year ago.


Beautiful boy, not yet one

Your mommy’s joy

Your daddy’s pride

Their only son


So full of life

for a nap you were laid down

When your mom checked on you

her heart cut like a knife


Your beautiful smile

No longer there

So still so quiet

A parent’s 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 remember your smile so wide

Heart so big

Everyone loved you

In our hearts you will forever reside


We gather to pray

For faith

For comfort, for strength

That your family can get through each day.
