You Left Dancing

As soon as I could feel you move I knew that you could dance We labored for a name for you The distinction wasn't by chance We bought you toys to fill your days We bought you clothes and planned your room We read you books and sang you songs While you were still within my womb Then cursed fates were meant to be Your fluid home was washed away And even though we wept and prayed You were born to us that day Heavens angels awaited you You came into our world Dancing to a tune only you could hear My love for you unfurled We named you Aiden Carter Spitfire was your name You fought a battle brave and true But you lost it just the same. You await us on the other side A shoreline too far for us to see Departed family holds you safe Until our souls are also free Dedicated to my son and daughter-in-law

Lena, I want to thank you for sharing this painful memory with me, for my contest, The Dusty Box of Memories. I asked you to make me cry, and you did. Congratulations on your second place win... Constance
