Forever in My Heart (Aarons Song)

Sometimes I look around me
and I see an empty space
where you might be playing
a sweet smile on your face.
You might be calling out to me
asking me to play
and I would be there with you
and you would fill my day.

When bedtime comes I'd read to you
then before I tuck you in
I would open up my arms
and you would climb right in.
I would kiss your baby cheek
and tell you "you're my love".
I would hold you close to me
and thank the Lord above...

But then I look around again
and there's just an empty space.
No toys scattered on the floor
no shinning little face.
I'll never hear you call my name
or watch you as you grow
but you will always be with me
no matter where I go.

And I know there is a heaven
and I know that you are there
and you have a better life
than I could give you here.
Until I take my final breath
I will always pray
that through God's most precious gift
I'll be with you some day.

Then, I will take you in my arms
and hold you close to me.
Your laughter will ring in my ears
your smiling face, I'll see.
We will be together
my precious baby boy
and then the only tears I'll cry
will be ones of joy.

I hope that you can hear me
I have so much to say
and I never had the chance
since you left me that day.
For now I want to tell you
that I love you so
and I am so sorry
that you had to go.

If you could have stayed with me
my dream would have come true
and I know I would have done
anything for you.
And even though you went away
and we must be apart
I know you will always live
forever in my heart.

Oh, love, I am so very sorry for your loss. I have suffered many miscarraiges, but never lost a child that had been born, I can't even let my mind go there, as it hurts too much. You will be together again, and know that, that little boy-o lives with your heart, always in your heart, know that. May you always have love, beautiful poem hun, Kristin

This is a very powerful piece of writing that reveals deep rooted pain. Your pen did a marvelous job of painting this canvas bringing the hurt alive..the longing lives clearly in those words. Great job of writing this exceptional piece.

i have been told that i have a majic pen. that is my highest compliment and i pass that on to you. i sit here with tears in eyes after reading this. knowing that God Almighty has put within you this; for only He can touch the Holy spirit and move us to pity and sorrow. i'm glad i know you and i'm glad your not far away. because you are one of the great ones and blessed.

Robin, I sense you were crying as you were writing. I had tears in my eyes, so I know. My heart breaks for you and I cannot imagine the emptiness and loss you feel. You will be together one day, and that is a beautiful thing to hold onto. Sending hugs. Love, Shar xoxo

Well written poignant lines straight from your heart. This is a pain that will never go away. I hope that the new company of PS can help you ease it though. I also have my empty spaces and wish they were filled by the ones I lost. Great words Robin and God bless...Raul

Thre is a sad undertine to this, but as well there is some acceptance and hope for recontact again. It's never easy losing someone especially a child, but as you note here, you carry him with you. Lovely, it brought tears to my eyes and read like aa sung country song. Michael
