Poems for Robyn
Since Heaven has become your home
I sometimes feel I'm so alone.
And though we now are far apart,
you hold a big piece of my heart,
I never knew how much I'd grieve,
when it was time for you to leave.
Or just how much my heart would ache,
from that one fragment you would take.
God lets this tender hole remain,
reminding me we'll meet again.
And one day all the pain will cease,
when He restores the missing piece.
For Jesus heals each tiny part,
that holds your memory in my heart.
ONLY THE BEST ~~
A Heart of Gold stopped beating,
shining eyes at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes The Best.
God knows you had to leave us,
you did not go alone ~
For part of us went with you,
The day He took you Home.
To some you are forgotten,
just the past.
But to us who loved and lost you,
Your memory will always last.
In Memory Of....
You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye
were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried
alone could have saved you,
You never would have died
In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
my heart you hold a place,
That no one could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.
* Best Angel Friends *
A beautiful little angel showed up to Heaven's
Confused and unknowing the plan that for him awaits.
Then another little angel walked up and took his hand
said, "Please don't be sad you left, you're in the Promised Land."
"I'm glad to be here but I do not think I was to go,
there was a mistake, for my mommy wanted me so."
The little greeting angel gave a sweet smile and said,
"My mommy wanted
me too, but to Heaven I was led.
You see, we do not get to choose when on Earth it's time to go.
He gave us life, love
and joy and a mother's womb to grow.
The Lord still needs new angels to guide them down on earth.
To watch over, comfort
them, and help them see their worth."
"Is there still a way that I can sleep in my mommy's bed?"
The greeting angel
grinned and said, "that luxury you'll keep.
I visit my mommy nightly and softly sing her to sleep."
The little angel
replied, "then I think I'll like it here.
I'll visit my mommy nightly and weaken her pain and fears.
I love her and
will keep her safe at night and in between,
And let her know with a sweet memory that she is still with me."
angel gave her new friend a big hug and said,
"Until our mommy's meet us here, let's be best angel friends."
said the new angel, "that sounds good to me."
Then the angels sat and played keeping their mommy's in sight,
the tunes to the song they would sing to their mommy's tonight...
Your Little Angel
Forever will I love you
You will always be my mom
As I sit with angels
I look down at you and point proudly
See . . .See her . . .over there, That's her!
Did you know I could hear your
thoughts at night
When you used to lie in bed staring, rubbing your hand on your belly
Looking up at the ceiling in
the dark wondering things . . .
Who I would look more like . . .
About how my laugh would sound . . .
steps . . .
Books that you would read to me . . ones with pictures . . .
"I like Those!"
The park . . .how you would walk me in a stroller to play on the swings
How about after I ate ice
cream the dog excitedly licking my
face almost knocking me down . . .
You just smiled when you read that . . I could
Do you know I call you "mommy"?
When you are in the kitchen I pretend I am there also and you can
I sit at the table and draw with crayons
I made a picture for the refrigerator
Yellow, blue, red and green
Look its of you and me with a sky and trees
I gave you curly hair . . .
Easter . . .that's my favorite
I always think of you holding my hand taking me to church
of my socks keeps falling down
Mommy . . .I like the way you kiss my sisters goodnight
on the forehead and tuck them in
with them in their dreams
They don't know me but if you ask if they ever
dreamed of playing with a little girl
would say yes . . .
That's me . . .
Do you remember that bird each early spring
that used to always return and sing
It would have
been right around the time of my birthday
That was me to . . .
I would sing "I love you"
I am always along side you . . .
Sometimes you can feel me
A brush against your dress, a breeze
on your face . . .
that's when I kiss you
You have always kept me in your mind and heart
Thank you . . .
One day we will be together
in heaven and you will cry
and lift me in your arms and I will hug
you so very tight and never let go . . .
But for now I have to . . .
No matter where you go, what you do, I am with you
Always know that I am "Your Little Angel"
love you mommy . . .
Bye . . .
Litter ears and nose
So precious, so innocent
not yet knowing what life holds
to learn, much to see
much to hear, much to feel
no hate, no malice
no prejudice, no
Two weeks from today
would have been the day
a joyous birthday
I miss you my child
my beloved first born.
Another day, another time
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 dad.
I have all kinds of playmates
And playgrounds everywhere!
and slides and
Balloon rides that whiz right
Through the air!
We have ice cream, cake and candy,
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
I can see everything!
So you see, daddy,
Even though I'm not with you,
I'm under my Father's care,
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
And when no one's looking,
We'll even swing on Heaven's Gate!
I love you daddy.
Mommy's Poem to Robyn
Robyn Nikole, my little angel...
I remember when I held you in my arms for the first time.
said "hello" and only moments later, I said "goodbye."
Your stay here was so brief,
But it has changed my life forever.
beauty, your innocence, and your perfection
Have touched me in a way that I wasn't prepared for.
I knew that I would
fall completely in love with you the moment I saw you;
But I could have never imagined how deep or intense that love would
I knew that loosing you would be painful,
But I could have never predicted this terrible, unending ache.
that I would be sad,
But how could I have known that this empty sadness would never leave me?
And although, I knew that
I would be happy when you were born,
I never dreamed that your brief life could bring such joy and happiness to mine.
of these emotions and more I experienced with such intensity
When you came into my life.
And although the happiness
came with sadness,
And the love came with pain,
I will never regret having you,
I will always be grateful for my
moment with you,
And I will forever cherish every memory of you!
You are my little angel
And I will hold you in my
Tiny Footprints on a Mother's Heart
When a baby arrives,
be it for a day, a month, a year or more,
or perhaps only a sweet flickering
the fragile spark of a tender soul
the secret swell of a new pregnancy
the goldfish flutter known to only
you are unmistakeningly changed...
the tiny footprints left behind on your heart
bespeak your name as Mother.
An empty space where life once stirred
My eyes were not yet seeing
Where once my heartbeat shared a tone
a small and fragile being
So scarcely formed yet still a life
A dream, a hope, a promise
Our plans were changed to
This new life thrust upon us
Then just as quickly as it came
Our dreams were gone away
pain I've ever felt
Our baby died today
With footprints left upon our hearts
She gently took her leave
with nothing but regret
And only time to grieve
There was no service to be held
No mourning time required
of longing and despair
No words to be inspired
We're simply told to bare the pain
"It's nature's way" they say
can't forget our baby moved
inside me yesterday
And with each word of sorrow
my teardrops fall like rain
are mixed with guilt and pain
I look to heaven for a sign
to help search out a course
can teach acceptance
and eliminate remorse
My body will accept the truth that now our baby's gone But in our hearts
our Angel everlastingly lives on!
