Once upon a time

Once upon a time

there lived a girl whose heart was whole.

She sang and laughed her way through life...

A sweet naivety filled her soul.

Even unto womanhood,

the worlds perception remained kind.

Pain and hurt from all around

evaded her narrow mind...

Until one day it happened...

Her world was torn apart.

This woman learned what it really meant,

to truly give her heart.

She thought that she had done it,

the day she said “I do”.

Or surely when she welcomed

baby one and baby two.

But laying on a table

hearing “incompatible with life”

Baby three won’t join your family,

as you had hoped he might.

The world became scary,

full of uncertainty and grief.

She gave her heart completely

knowing time would be her thief.

The day arrived to say hello

to a sweet soul passing through.

What a blessing through her heartache

to say “Son, we both love you”.

As good-bye was being uttered,

she slipped her son her heart.

He gave to her his memories

and now they will never be apart.

Each holds a piece

of what the other had to give.

He has my heart,

and for his memory I will live.

I love you Wyatt and miss you more than words!

Thinking of you and your Wyatt. Lovely thoughts in your poem, Danielle. I got the package from you with the FAMILY ornament when we were still sick - just thanked you for it today on my blog. My digital camera is awful, but I put up a photo of where it is in our home. We love it! (((hugs)))

Danielle it made me cry. It was so beautiful. I had a tough Thanksgiving thinking about my three angels and I'm sure you had a tough one thinking about Wyatt as well. You were definitely in my prayers.
