Kennah would have been two years old on Dec 2…as it gets closer it gets harder.. I miss her… sorry if this seems redundant for me to post things about her but its soothing…. this poem caught me.. hopefully no one will ever know what it feels like to lose a child… treasure ever moment you never know if its your last….
Daddy, please don’t look so sad,
Mama please don’t cry~
"Cause I am in the arms of Jesus
and He sings me lullabies."
Please, try not to question God,
Don’t think he is unkind
Don’t think He sent me to you,
and then He changed his mind.
You see, I am a special child,
and I’m needed up above
I’m the special gift you gave Him,
the product of your love.
I’ll always be there with you
and watch the sky at night,
Find the brightest star that’s gleaming,
That’s my halo’s brilliant light.
You’ll see me in the morning frost,
that mists your window pane.
That’s me in the summer showers,
I’ll be dancing in the rain.
When you feel a little breeze,
from a gentle wind that blows
That’s me, I’ll be there,
planting a kiss on your nose.
When you see a child playing,
and your heart feels a little tug,
That’s me, I’ll be there,
giving your heart a hug.
So Daddy, please don’t look so sad,
Mama don’t your cry.
I’m in the arms of Jesus
and He sings me lullabies.November 15, 2007 at 4:56 am #19601Meg11
Oh Devyn…that is a very beautiful poem, I am so glad that you are letting the Lord soothe you with sweet words of healing…. Don’t ever worry about being redundant, there is a time and a place for every season under heaven…. maybe if someone got fired from a job and 3 years later they were still going on and on about it after they had already found a better job and all the rest it might be appropriate to let them know they need to move on and let it go!! But with you and anyone else who has lost a child whether from the womb or older in age that baby was a part of you and you have every right to share your loss, hurt, pain, healing, songs and poems…there is a right time to "move on" but that moving on process has nothing to do with not talking about your child, it just means that you are taking the next step in the grieving process and are able to function again and look to the future without guilt….You are free and welcome to share your memories and love that you will always have of and for Kennah and I can’t speak for everyone else but for myself I will gladly receive your words and never despise your tears…I love you and we will be praying for you on her birthday…do you have any plans?? Love Meg
