sweet baby Sarah

this candle burns for you

July 1, 1999


Our daugher Sarah was born prematurely at 23 weeks gestation. How we studied each and every little feature and counted all ten fingers and toes. I looked down at angelic face. You were so beautiful. Mommy and Daddy's little princess. We prayed to God
the whole time I carried you inside. Our prayers went unanswered. What a courageous battle you fought. You were with us for only two hours, but they were two of the happiest and saddest hours of our lives. You filled our hearts with such love and happiness. We watched as you folded your little fingers around ours. You were so tiny. We could hold you in the palm of our hands. Now, we hold
you in our hearts. You left to be with your big brothers Christopher and Michael. I know that you are in heaven
playing and having fun. I miss you all so much. We will
all be together some day. Until then Sarah....
Mommy & Daddy


A Baby's Secret
I'm just a little fellow,
who didn't quite make it there.
I went straight to be with Jesus,
but I'm waiting for you here.
Don't you fret about me, Mommy.
I'm all of God's lambs most blessed,
I'd have loved to stay here with you,
but the shepherd know what's best.
Many dwelling here where I live
waited years to enter in,
Struggled through a world of sorrow
and their lives were filled with sin.
So sweet Mommy, don't you sorrow,
wipe those tears and chase the gloom.
I went straight to Jesus bosom
from my lovely Mothers' womb
Thank you for the life you gave me,
it was brief but don't complain,
I have all of Heavens glory,
suffered none of earthlings pain.
Thank you for the name you gave me,
I'd love to brought it fame,
But if I lingered in Earth's shadows
might instead have brought it shame.
Daddy gave me something for you,
It's our secret Mommy dear,
pressed it tight against my forehead,
whispered in my tiny ear.
I'll be waiting for you Mommy,
You and Daddy and the rest.
I'll be with you then forever.
then I'll give you Daddy's kiss.
