I am sad...

I am sad. Unfortunately, Shawn and I faced a personal loss this past weekend and have had a rough few days. Thanks honey for staying strong and all you've done with the kids and the housework while I try to get back on my feet. I also want to thank my sister for all her help - you are the best! I am on an emotional roller coaster right now and I am having a difficult time getting past all of this. I thought if I put some of my feelings in writing it would help me to heal. Thank you all for your support while I try to get back on track physically and emotionally.

You Are Loved...
A soft cry we'll never hear
A sweet smile we'll never see
Why did this happen?
How can this be?
No cheeks to caress
Or shower kisses upon
No tiny hands to hold
The dreams are all gone.
We won't know what you looked like
How big you would grow to be
Whose personality you may have
Hear you talk and laugh with glee
We won't have a chance to comfort you
And make everything alright
We won't get to take you to the park
Or watch you ride a bike.
Even though we couldn't meet
We love you with all our hearts
Before we got to be together
God chose for us to be apart.
He will take good care of you
Our angel up above
Our time was not meant to be right now
Just know that you are loved.
