Littlest Angel

My littlest angel as I watch you sleep. 
I hold back the tears as you count sheep. 
So sweet in slumber I stroke your brow, 
I wonder to myself what should I do now?
The doctor's orders the therapy and braces, 
Just once I wish I could wipe the pity from their faces. 
No seizures, no stiff muscles, no difficult speech. 
I only wish it was within your reach. 

But for now I pray for God's divine light, 
For the strength you need to battle this fight. 
In the darkness I can hide the tears, 
The sorrow lay open, no one leers. 

If I could go back and change your birth, 
I’d make you whole for what it's worth. 
I kiss your soft cheek before I go, 
Whispering I love you, praying you’ll always know.

    This is one tender, but heart breaking poem, of love and regret........but mostly love. You brought a tear....

    Mommy Dearest You may not know this mommy But I'm an angel in disguise The moment your eyes saw me I grew wings and flew in with glee All you have to do is love me, You just wait and see I am made of beauty, just like mommy.xxxViel

    You know you can draw strength from God. He is your source of energy. You will be the strength that your child can draw from. Make that your wish and it will be yours. Just know that He is with you also to care for this child, Lisa. Love you, Toquyen

    I'm so sorry, Lisa... I can't imagine what it must be like to have a child with physical challenges. This is extraordinarily beautiful... so much tenderness, so much love, and the ever present blessings of faith and grace. God bless, Keith
