Parents for a week

Parents for a week
Over before it starts
Hopes and dreams washed away by blood
Leaving two broken hearts
How will we remember you
Twenty years from now?
The false start, a minor tug at the heart?
Or the last shot at happiness,
A tragic work of art?
Farewell little one, we'll bid you farewell
Your spotless soul's bound for heaven
As this world descends into hell

    This is so sad but beautifully written... I understand this and can well relate. I am so sorry for your loss. You will never forget that little one, twenty years later you will still remember... and that little one will be watching over you guys, it's mama and daddy... they say in heaven they grow and learn... I firmly believe that. I wish there were more I could say to help... my heart is with you both. Love, Amy

    Kevin, I am deeply sorry for your loss. The feeling is so devastating and empty, there are no words truly. A tiny angel now is at peace in heaven. One day we will hopefully understand the why's of such tragedies here on earth. My heart goes out to you both. Love, Shar
