Child gone too soon   

I stand here, yet I don’t know how,
I don’t crumble to the ground,
I’ve been lost and broken since you left,
So sad you’re not around.

We held hands and laughed a lot,
And at times we shared some tears,
But together we could face the world,
And challenge all our fears.

I held onto you from your first day,
You were loved with all my heart,
Sadly now that heart’s broken,
My life, it’s torn apart.

Child loss for a friend Poem   

Loss it is so cruel,
A sadness that can burn,
Little things can haunt you,
With darkness at every turn.
Your heart though knows that you are good,
You did your best each day,
And though time it may have been brief,
It was special in every way.
You are struggling right now,
But that’s perfectly okay,
Life is cruel and so unfair,
There is little more to say.

To all parents poem   

You may not feel it deep inside,
But believe me you are strong,
Look at all that you’ve achieved,
So much right, so little wrong.

You might think that it is your fault,
But that simply isn’t true,
Life can be so cruel at times,
And there’s nothing you can do.

Yes, it is the hardest thing,
For you to have to take,
Losing a child, it is not fair,
But there’s choices you can make.

My little butterfly   

You held my finger in your hand,
So strong for one so small,
But life’s been cruel and taken you,
You were my everything, my all.

Like a gentle butterfly,
On the breeze you’ll float away,
Up to heaven you will fly,
And heaven’s where you’ll stay.

A life taken too soon poem   

How sad we feel as we stand here,
Without you at our side,
The days have all seem endless,
All the tears that we have cried,
For though you blessed us for a while,
Your smile lighting up the room,
Sadly you have left us now
a life taken too soon.

Butterfly; Loss of a child   

Forever we’ll remember,
Though it’s so sad we’ve said goodbye,
In our hearts you’ll stay with us,
Fly with angels, butterfly.

Our hearts forever broken,
All the tears that we will cry,
Your time though brief, was beautiful,
Fly with angels, butterfly.

A child of mine   

I will lend you, for a little time,
A child of mine, He said.
For you to love the while he lives,
And mourn for when he’s dead.
It may be six or seven years,
Or twenty-two or three.
But will you, till I call him back,
Take care of him for Me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you,
And should his stay be brief.

When God takes a child   

What does it mean to be a Christian

when the God you know and love

takes a child you know and love?

When He takes your child your baby

your most beloved belonging?

Butterflies in the breeze   

The butterflies on the breeze,
The whisper through the trees,
The crinkle on the leaves,
Was it you?

The sparkle in the stream,
The murmurs in my dream
The efforts for our team,
Was it you?

The beauty that beguiled,
The sounds of the wild,
The giggle of my child,
Was it you?

Precious   

Two smiling eyes stopped smiling,
A golden heart stood still,
We don’t know why God took you,
And guess we never will.
He only lent you to us,
Then came and took you back,
To us you were so precious,
Your life was full of fun,
A caring, loving brother,
A darling little son.
