I'll Be There
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
Or 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
And mama, don't you cry
I'm in the arms of Jesus
And he sings me lullabies

Someone Is Missing
Someone is missing from our dinner table,
from our bedroom and our home.
Someone is missing from holiday celebrations,
family vacations and everywhere in between.
Someone is missing from our lives,
Our littlest one is gone.
He will not have birthday parties, graduations, or celebrations.
We will miss him throughout eternity
and our family will never be complete.
Someone is missing, yet we go on.
Our lives are touched by him.
Changed forever by his brief existence.
His memory we keep alive.
He lives only in our hearts and minds,
We were blessed by his short life.
Our love for him forever strong.
Even though...someone will always be...MISSING.
- D. Lutz

A Mother's Day Ode
I am your mother, but you, my child, I cannot hold.
It'll get easier with time, or so I'm told.
People may forget that I am your mother.
I'm part of a secret club we only share with one another.
But that doesn't diminsh my love for you.
I think of you the whole day through.
I wonder what you're doing, my Precious Little One.
We are connected by an Infinite bond which cannot come undone.
I will not let Death tear us apart.
I promise to always keep you alive in my heart.
- Susan Mosquera

You came in a hurry,
Way too soon.
My special gift.

Your life was short,
But you taught me so much.
It isn’t fair,
I had to let you go.
You were my special gift from God.

I miss you everyday
Not a minute goes by,
That I don’t think of you.
My special gift.

So many memories we made together,
I will cherish you forever.
My special gift from God.

I can’t wait til the day
We will be reunited
I will hold you forever.
I love you, always.
My special gift from God.
- Nicole Lothridge

Just For A While
Just for a while
You had a shining dream
Then darkness fell
All around you, sadness and despair
No light to guide you, no laughter there
Just for a while I was your hope fulfilled
Then hope was gone
My soul released from its imperfect shell
Saw your tears
And caught them as they fell
I felt you touch and stroke my tiny form
Like a butterfly that lives
And dies in just one day
I left the world
And gently flew away
Just for a while
I touched your lives with joy
And then with pain
But don't be sad and grieve each coming year
Just hold each other close and say
Just for a while
Our precious child was here.

Dear Daddy
I know today is Father's Day and you miss me really bad,
But if you could see what I see,
You wouldn't be so sad.
I have all kinds of playmates
and playgrounds everywhere,
with swings  and slides and
balloon rides that whiz right
through the  air.
 
We have ice cream, cake and candy,
milk, cookies and punch;
We never have to go to bed
and we  choose what we want for lunch.
 
There's even a river where you and I could fish,
the water's as clear as a day in  spring;
And beautiful rainbows and fluffy white clouds
from  which I can see everything!!!!!!!!
 
So you see daddy,
even though I'm not with you,
I'm under my Father’s care,
And when it's time for you to come,
you'll find me waiting right here!
 
And I'll give you the biggest hug,
Gee, I can hardly wait.
And when no one's looking,
We'll even swing on Heaven's Gate!
I love you daddy.  HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

Sweet Child of Mine
Where are you now, sweet child of mine
Where are you now
Are you the whispering in the wind, the gentle breeze
Are you all the things I do not understand
Are you the heavens and the earth
Where are you now
Are you my protector in the dark
Are you there to see the tears that fall from my face
And wipe them gently away and give me the will to go on
Does your courage and bravery in life
And the fact that I was always
So proud of you, and still am
Give me the strength and inspire me to tell
The world how wonderful you are
But where are you now?
I was always there for you
Did I let you down
When you had to take those last steps on your own
Did I let you down as I held your hand
You have gone to a place and I could not go with you
But some day, my darling, I will come to you again
As you are with me eternally
You are every breath I take, every action I do
You are in my dreams, you are my dream
Where are you now, sweet child of mine
I am the sound of your breathing
I am the sound of your heart beating
I am your life and you are mine
Together for eternity
My loving son always
-Kathleen Cowan 

God, Take This Child
Sweet child whom we never really got to know,
It’s hard for us to let you go.
We waited and we wanted you.
We had so many dreams for you.
We think of smiles we'll never see.
We think of events that will never be.
There will be no first steps and no first teeth.
There is only a void and our own grief.

We planned to take you to places far and near.
We yearned to keep you safe and free from fear.
We hoped to show you much of your new world.
We wanted to teach you as your life unfurled.

It's hard to understand why you, our baby, died.
We feel so numb right now, many tears we’ve cried.
We have so many questions and no answers seem to come.
We tried so hard to save you; nothing could be done.
God, we stand before you broken-hearted
And ask you to heal these lives that must be parted
From this little one we can no longer hold,
Who will always be a part of us,
Even when we're old.

God, take this child in your loving arms
No more can he suffer any harm.
Bless him always and bless us too
Be with us and help us to make it through.
-Nancy Scott
