Love, Mommy

I’ll never get to rock you,

or softly comb your hair.

I’ll never get to tuck you in

with a well-loved teddy bear.

There’ll be no Mother’s Day cards,

no wild flower bouquets,

no puppet shows, no zoos, no parks,

no graduation days.

I won’t dance at your wedding,

won’t watch you hold you own first born.

Your life, too brief, and stolen from you,

has left me and your Daddy torn.

But I’ll cherish the time, sweet Collins,

when we were connected by a cord,

I’ll rejoice in knowing you are now safe

in the arms of the Almighty Lord.

I’ll look for you in each sunbeam;

I’ll feel your presence in the wind.

And you will live in our hearts, forever,

Wrapped in a love without any end.

I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. But still, the place you live in is that much more gray.

May you find comfort in these words during your healing.
