My Child

You left this life too soon, my child.
Baptized right after birth to prepare you for your journey.
The angels came and took you from my arms.
Tears cried for days, knowing what will be missed.
To watch you grow, to watch you take your first steps.
To hear the first time you say mama.
God had a different purpose for you, my son.
I will go on without you, an empty hole in my heart.
Your spirit flows all around me, your blood flows within me.
