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
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.
