My little boy came into the world
Quiet and peaceful no cries to be heard
Waiting for the cry was like a thousand years
The silence like thunder in my ears
God came down from above and said
I need this little one in heaven instead
I pleaded with God to take another
But He said I will send him a little brother
His little eyes closed. His hand went tight
I held him and prayed with all my might
That maybe God will change His mind
And give me back this son of mine
I realize now that God was right
And He needed my boy in heaven that night
He is with God and I am at peace
I know he’s surrounded by angels at least
I picture him flying with his wings
I imagine him doing wonderful things
I pray he looks down on me everyday
And blesses his family in every way.
I miss you Noah with all my heart
I will never forget your beating heart
Your tiny hands and tiny feet
Your baby smell, ever so sweet
Together only a very short time
It felt like eternity in my mind
I will never forget you, not now not ever
My love for you will last forever

She came without a cry.
So small, eyes closed, never opened to see our love;
But could feel it softly as our tears fell on her cheeks.
Beautiful round face.
White blonde hair.
Struggling to stay with us long enough for us to hold her;
To kiss her;
To feel her warmth;
To see her face.
Joy and heartbreak filled us all.
Joy for the hour we had been blessed with her.
Heartbreak for her passing so soon from our lives.
Quietly, so quietly she faded and faded and then she was gone.
How could someone so young and small,
Someone in our lives only an hour,
Make such an impression, an impression that will stay with us as long as we live?
Quietness and stillness filled the room when she passed,
Like all of the noise had been sucked out of the room.
As if we in that room were the only people in the world.
Then gently we each kissed her goodbye.
I know that each of us left a part of ourselves behind.
None of us would ever be quite the same again.
But we also took something wonderful with us,
There was a gift given to each of us that day.
A gift that we can cherish forever.
The gift of her hanging on so long;
Showing us how much she wanted to be with us.
Thank you for coming to our family.
Know that you will always be loved.

There are no words to describe,
the feelings I have inside.
Each new day is a magnificent one,
and waiting for you,
my daughter or son,
is an emotional and intense time
because a mother’s love is one of a kind.
I am blessed to be waiting for your arrival.
I promise, my little one,
to be the best mom I know I can be.
I will love you forever unconditionally!
