A very kind and thoughtful lady, one the blog followers in fact, sent me a wonderful poem to give to my niece to help her when she is alittle stronger. I was so impressed with not only the kindness shown by the lovely Christine, but also the way the poem helps lift something so devastatingly sad into something joyful. Please, don't think for one minute that I am being thoughtless by saying I have found joy in this tragedy, but I think once you have read it you will understand what I mean. Thank you so much Christine, I have read and re-read this poem several times and each time I found it tearjerking and yet calming at the same time.
From the emails I have received, I know that there are many among you who have experienced this tragic loss yourselves, so with you in mind also, I would like to share this poem that Christine Harrop sent to me.
From Your Baby
Daddy please don’t look so sad, Mummy please don’t cry,
Cause I’m in the arms of Jesus and He sings me lullabies.
Please try not to question God, and don’t think He’s unkind,
Don’t think he sent me to you and then He changed His mind.
You see, I am a Special Child, I’m needed up above,
I’m the special gift you gave to Him, a product of your love,
I’ll always be there with you so watch the sky at night.
Look for the brightest star and know that’s my halo’s brilliant light!
You’ll see me in the morning frost that mists your window pane,
That’s me in the summer showers, I’ll be dancing in the rain.
When you feel a gentle breeze from a gentle wind that blows,
Know that it will be me planting a kiss upon your nose.
When you see a child playing and your heart feels a little tug,
Don’t be sad Mummy that’s me giving your heart a hug.
So Daddy please don’t look so sad and Mummy please don’t cry,
I’m in the arms of Jesus and He sings me lullabies.
Take care dear blog friends. Who knew blogging could fulfill more than just our crafting needs!!!
