Funeral Poem for Family

When My Son Passed Away

This was written by my Brother when my Son passed away

Baby Danny

© Christian Pennachietti
I was Conceived 9 months ago,
You thought of me as an egg,
I knew I was your son.

In your belly it was dark,
it was a scary place to be,
Then I Heard your voice and heart
and knew that you loved me.
You fed me and nourished me,
you carried me with no shame,
you did everything right for me
so please don't take the blame.

And then it came
September 21st the moment of my debut
it didn't go as we had planned
there was nothing you could do.
So you see its not your fault Daddy and Mommy
I hope you understand
nothing could change what had happened
because this was God's perfect plan.

And now I'm in heaven what wonders to be hold
I've sat beside the crystal sea
and walked the streets of gold.

So now I leave you mom and dad,
with this my final plea.
Thank you for this perfect life
You both have given to me.

See ya soon
Baby Danny

  • This was my first time I was going to be an aunt! I was only 12 when it happened but I remember it like it was yesterday! I cry every time I see this poem, but then it makes me realize that I am going to see my nephew Baby Danny one day! :)
