Morning Star (Dawnica) - Poem by Daleen Enslinstrydom

(written in memory of their lost)

You came like the beaming light
of the morning star
but goodbye is so difficult
when I never got to say hello.

In a moment in time
you came into our lives
and news of your existing
brightened up our days
and with hope
you broke through in cheerfulness.

Wonderfully happy
we were all eager to meet you
but you were far too precious
for this world.

God in his infinite wisdom
did hold you back
and now we do not understand
why we have got to go
through all of this pain
but pain will at a time go away
and we will never let you go.

We did not even have time
to hold you in our hands
and see your beautiful face
and no matter what gender you were
we already did love you.

On the ct-scans we did see you
and your mother heard you heartbeat
and although you did not yet have a name
grandma will call you starlight
as you did come like the beams
of the morning star
from somewhere far away
to light up our lives
and we are thankful that you did come
and will always remember you in our hearts
and although you are now gone
you will always be a part of our memories
that lives on in our hearts.
