A poem from our baby in Heaven... He didn't want us to worry. 👼🏻
"Our Baby's Secret "
I am your little baby
Who didn't quite make it there;
I went straight to be with Jesus,
And I'm waiting for you there.
Don't fret about me, Mommy,
I am now one of God's lambs most blessed;
I wish I could have stayed there with you,
But the Shepherd knows what's best.
Many others are dwelling here where I am,
Waiting years to enter in;
Some struggled through a world of sorrow,
And their lives were marked with sin.
So sweet Mommy, don't you sorrow
Wipe your tears and chase your heart within.
I went straight to be with Jesus
From my lovely Mother's womb, I was in.
Thank you for the life you gave me,
It was brief but, don't complain,
I have all of Heavens Glory
Suffered none of the earth's pain.
Thank you for the name you gave me
I'd have loved to bring it fame;
But if I had lingered in earth's shadows,
I may have instead brought it shame.
Daddy gave me something for you,
It's our secret, Mommy dear.
He kissed me on my forehead
Then he whispered it in my ear.
I'll be waiting for you here.
In memory of my firstborn, Jared...
