Don't Cry Mommy


Don't cry mommy
I am right here by your side
I know that you can't see me
but I am watching you
I didn't go far
just up to Heaven to sit on God's lap
It is such a pretty place
full of light and laughter
No pain or illness
just sunshine and smiles
I'm helping God watch you
and the rest of our family too
I'm your baby still
even though I have left for Heaven
I'll always be with you mommy
so please pretty please
don't cry mommy

(dedicated to all the moms that have lost a child or had a miscarriage)

    This is beautiful, Grace. I always imagine my little angels in Heaven with my great-grandmother. She always loved little babies. This one gets a 10. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
