Lorren you were our little gift from God. He gave you to us only for a brief moment. Every day we rejoiced in your growing inside of me. I never felt you go but the whole you left when God brought you back home will span eternity. You are our angel. I found this poem that touches me and I can never read it without crying. I love you so much.
God, Take This Child....
by Nancy Scott
Sweet child whom we never really got to know, Itís hard for us to let you go.
We waited and we wanted you.
We had so many dreams for you.
We think of smiles we'll never see.
We think of events that will never be.
There will be no first steps and no first teeth.
There is only a void and our own grief.
We planned to take you to places far and near.
We yearned to keep you safe and free from fear.
We hoped to show you much of your new world.
We wanted to teach you as your life unfurled.
Itís hard to understand why you, our baby, died.
We feel so numb right now, many tears weíve cried.
We have so many questions and no answers seem to come.
We tried so hard to save you; nothing could be done.
God, we stand before you broken-hearted
and ask you to heal these lives that must be parted from this little one we can no longer hold, who will always be a part of us, even when we're old.
God, take this child in your loving arms.
No more can she suffer any harm.
Bless her always and bless us too.
Be with us and help us to make it through.
