please don't cry.
I'm in heaven now,
so dry your eyes.
God is keeping me safe and warm,
just as you did from the day I was born.
We don't know for sure why this happened to me,
but in your heart, mind, and soul I will always be.
We need to cherish the memories,
till the day you're here with me.
Think of all the times you made me laugh and smile.
That should make you feel better Mommy...just for a while?
Even though I passed away so young,
I'm still living, Mommy,
and still so strong.
You made me the little boy I am today,
now let God take over; he has his ways.
I'm an Angel now, Mommy,
watching over you,
so please don't hurt or cry,
I will feel it too.
Oh, I wanted to let you know I have received my wings.
When we see each other again,
I will teach you how to use these things.
I want you to laugh, Mommy,
and I will too.
I know it's so hard and you can't feel my touch,
but just remember, Mommy,
I LOVE YOU THIS MUCH.
I cried reading this poem..Couldn't put it in more beautiful words. My heart is bleeding now- we lost our precious baby boy Louie only four days ago... He was born with a rare bleeding...
I Love You This Much
