Baby Death Poem

The Loss Of A Grandchild

My husband and I were having our 1st grandchild, and it was a boy! We received devastating news that he had a rare disease and all of his internal organs were going to be on the outside of his body. The doctor informed us that he would only live a few minutes. We buried our precious angel in Feb of 2018. We were all heartbroken to see our daughter have to go through such heartache. I wrote this for our grandson to be read at his funeral. Silas Michael Speck, until we meet again one day!

Now we lay you down to sleep.
Our baby boy's soul to keep.
We pray you feel how much you're loved.
So many hearts you've surely touched.

You've had our hearts from day one.
A blessing above to be given a son.
I'd hoped to cradle you and rock you fast asleep,
Holding you so close feeling every single heartbeat.

To hear your first sweet words or watch that first step,
Playing peek-a-boo with you, our hearts would surely melt.
For this is not goodbye; God has promised this to me.
You will always be our baby, and in our hearts you'll always be.

For our sweet baby boy, today you've gained your wings.
As we hand you back to God, we can hear those angels sing.
Heaven will be waiting for you, and until that day you greet us,
Our baby you'll always be; letting go unto the arms of Jesus.
