Kaitlyn Rose

Our beautiful daughter,
was born sleeping into the arms of our Lord on January 17, 2009
at 24 weeks
in Newmarket, Ontario.

We'll never not remember you, Kaitlyn Rose.
Love your mommy and daddy

Cradling Song
By John Bell

We cannot care for you the way we wanted, or cradle you or listen to your cry;
but separated as we are by silence, our love will not die.

We cannot watch you growing into childhood, and find a new uniqueness every day;
but special as you would have been among us, forever you still will stay.

So through the mess of anger, grief and tiredness, through tensions which are not yet reconciled,
we give to God the worship of our sorrow and you, our dear child.

Lord, in your arms which cradle all creation we rest and place our baby beyond death
believing that she now, alive in heaven, breathes with your own breath

Absolutely beautiful poem. My condolences on the loss of your daughter. We lost our daughter before her birth in 2008. We are expecting our third now, and if she is a girl, she will be named Kaitlyn Rose.
