Your Spirit Lives On!

Your Spirit Lives on!

Haunted by the death of one that was so young.
Taken by the hands of someone very strong.

In my mind I wonder- exactly what took place?
As I see bruises on the body and a thumb print on the face.

That awful sound I heard as CPR I began.
Comes rushing to my mind
time and time again.

Haunted by that night is embedded within my head.
While looking at a child- who is now dead.

Your Spirit lives on-
 in the family
while looking for answers
causes my heart to weep!


   A True event I lived on Nov. 7-2007

    awww a sad but powerful poem, many children have been lost in our family, my sister had a still born baby it was so heart wrenching, my heart and thoughts go out to you, I feel sad because my dad has been gone 13 years this august 23 hours after I gave birth, but they do live on in our hearts, it's the one thing that keeps me strong just trusting God is looking after them all, thanks for your kind comments God bless you from diane
