For Baby Robert's Mother

For you I do pray
My words come hesitantly, I'm just not sure what to say
I am a mother myself and for your son I will pray
I feel your pain as though it were my own
I can't tell you I know how you feel in this time of unknown
Your life feels so empty without him at home
I couldn't imagine the horror if it were one of my own
We are given a voice but not a choice
Whom lives and whom dies it is only for God's eyes
They say he is a merciful God and to his mercy we do appeal
Let him have mercy let him hear how we feel
Your child is special, he is the brightest of stars
Please God in your infinite mercies see that his leaving would leave a ugly scar
For the love of a child is the deepest of emotions
He has awakened in us, from both near and far, a definite devotion
Your child is special, more than you know
Your beautiful baby has broken down walls
Wall of indifference and intolerance in us all
He is innocence defined, he carries no blame
We have all come together to send our prayers in his name


This precious child later lost his battle with cancer but he lives on in the poetry created for him and his family and in their hearts and memories.
