Yes it has very much so because I lost my 17 year old baby in march 2009 and it was like losing my heart and soul, my own life.

Here To Stay

©

Published by Family Friend Poems July 2006 with permission of the Author.

Our children are here to stay
But our babies are not, I'm sorry to say
They grow and learn every day
In the most remarkable and intriguing way

We watch and admire our babies so young
Hoping someday they will go to be strong
Wisdom and integrity are a hopeful thought, too
Their brilliance is amazing, that much is true

Now they are in school and you don't know what to do
The house is so unnaturally quite and subdued
You try to keep busy, a hobby of some sort
But it doesn't quite fill the missing sound of children playing, of course

Off to college and all grown up, how could this be?
Just yesterday it seemed they were three
You can't wait to watch them grow
Then the day comes when you watch them go

Cherish the little moments so tender and sweet
They grow so quickly you can barely speak
But remember this, as I reassure you with a tear in my eye
Babies are your children and your children will never say 'Goodbye'

As you watch a Great-Great-Grandmother holding that lil' one
You are astonished by the miracle that's been done
