You Put A Song In My Heart

You put a song in my heart The day you were born And when he took you away My heart was torn. I knew you were special The moment you cried With tiny features Your destiny couldn’t hide. With every heart beat I prayed for more time To hold your little body And sing you life’s rhyme. You were born an angel A special gift from above And I only had eight days To give you all my love. He polished your halo And said it’s time to go And with your hand in mine I watched your wings grow. You put a song in my heart That never went away And I still feel your love Watching over me every day.

Your poem touches me deeply because I, too, have a child that was born to god. My son, who was full-term, died in my belly the night before I was scheduled to deliver. It's such a tragic and profoundly sad loss and it takes a long time to heal...but you do heal, and you will, in time. We just have to trust that God's Plan is too great for us to understand just now, but eventually we will understand, and we will be reunited with our little angels again one day. You're in my thoughts & prayers
