In Loving Memory of Our Special Boy

hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of Heaven.

Born Still


And yet the beating of your heart was silent

The breath of life from rosebud lips not felt.

Your silken lashes did not flutter,

Unopened eyes never held our gaze.

The grasp of your small fingers still and without strength

Your arms will never reach for us, feet carry you to your embrace

And we will never hear the music of your voice

Or know the sweet fragrance of your skin.

When did the tide of death steal you away?

If we could breathe our own life's breath

Bequeath you minutes days years; we would.

But we are not the author or deliverer of life

We cannot solve the mystery of spirit and soul

Or remove the shroud of death that holds you still

Sweet child whose life will only ever live within our dreams

We speak your name upon the wind and it is carried far away

But you remain imprinted on our hearts
