IN MEMORY OF
OUR LITTLE ANGEL FRENCH
by Your Loving Mommy and Daddy:
To My Sweet Angel ...
Oh child that I will never see,
I pray to God to comfort me.
I wanted you so much, ’tis true …
and now alone I grieve for you.
It wasn’t in God’s great design
to let me keep this child of mine.
Were you a girl? Were you a boy?
I couldn’t hide my inner joy
when your presence was made known
a child, that was to be my own.
and as you grew inside my womb
my hopes for you were growing too
with dreams for my growing family …
dreams now wrenched away from me.
And now you’re gone, and I am here
midst untold sadness, grief and fear.
The waiting, anticipation great
has turned to tears by way of fate.
I know my God works all things well
and that my sorrow He can quell,
but I cannot help but cry sometimes
because there is a tie that binds
my heart to yours, love strong and true …
I always will remember you.
I think of things that might have been,
and the tears come back time and again.
When April 11th comes next year,
I’m sure that I will shed a tear
or two, for my child I love,
you're now waiting up in heaven above. I love you and miss you! ~Mommy
