The hardest part of life

In my arms I held you tight
Through the hardest part of life
In my heart the memories clear
Of the greatest child I love so dear
I held you so close to my heart
Praying that we’ll never part
But angels came and took you away
And tears I shed for your everyday
Now a shining lit up star
My precious child watches from up far
And sees all the pain I’m going through                                                                      Know that you are forever in my heart




Tony’s poem

This poem was written by Tony Doiron.  I assume from the words that Tony lost a child too…  This poem really got to me.  My child was just older and could walk, talk and count…  Thank you for your beautiful words Tony.

You were lying in my arms,
As I tried to say goodbye,
“It is for the best”, they said,
And I knew that was true.

I gazed at your little hands,
Given to us that day,
You wouldn’t feel pain again,
But I wanted you to stay.

You fought for every breath you took,
Never letting go,
Until one day God made you His,
Leaving all of us below.

Although you couldn’t walk or talk,
Or even count to ten,
Your short life had more impact,
Than a hundred million men.

(written by Tony Doiron)


My beautiful baby girl
My beautiful baby girl
What makes Vic strong?
Her heritage…
What makes Vic weak?
Her fears…  
What makes Vic whole?
Her God…
What keeps Vic standing?
Her faith…
 What makes Vic compassionate?
Her selflessness…
What makes Vic honest?
Her integrity…
What sustains Vic mind?
Her quest for knowledge…
What teaches Vic all lessons?
Her mistakes…
What lifts Vic head high?
Her pride…
What if she can’t go on?
Not an option…
 What makes Vic victorious?
Her courage to climb…
What makes Vic competent?
Her confidence…
What makes Vic beautiful?
Her everything…
What makes Vic a woman?
Her heart…
Who says she needs love?
She does…
What empowers Vic?
Her God …
