My Unsung Hero

My Unsung Hero

O' so tiny, a son born at twenty-four ounces
 now laughter rings, as on my knee he bounces
Fought, such a fighter for sweet life was he
 precious fruit from our great Love Tree!

I held him as breast milk he was gravity fed
 still we remember all those tears we shed
Ninety days in the hospital he stayed to heal
 now watch him sing, laugh and loudly squeal!

Seven long years he has been healing now
 a miracle granted when we pray and bow
Relief as more weight is all he now needs
 thank God for his life , joy that it seeds!

Our son, a brave fighter that fought to make it!
A miracle gifted , a blessing , happily we take it!

Carol Eastman's, "Unsung Hero Contest"

Note: Based upon the premature birth of our son Justin at just 24 ounces
 and his 3 months in hospital , coming home at only three and a half pounds.
Two operations later and 4 years on an urinary reflux antibiotic he has now 
made it to seven years old!!!!
God heals and blesses..
