Mourning Poem

My niece had her first baby April 10, 2009. He is named Howie after his father who was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident several months before the baby was born. I submitted the poem for a memorial scrapbook the family is making.

Dear Little Howie

© Sharon Henry
Your Dad is your angel
gone to Heaven above.
His wings now surround you
with protection and love.

He watches and smiles
with fatherly joy
At the antics and laughter
of his precious boy.

And though here on Earth
you will never know him
There's a bond between you
that cannot be broken.

Then someday, God tells us,
we'll all be together
Where love is eternal
and we'll all live forever.

So be glad, Little Howie,
live life without fear.
Your Dad is your angel
and he'll always be near.

  • My story is a lil different but your poem still pertains to what I have to say. My daughter died from HELLP Syndrome 47 days after she had her baby girl. I tell my granddaughter all the time her mommy is an angel & she is always looking down on her & that she's always gonna be proud of her no matter what.
