Poems I wanted to share...........

I found these poems back in November when my best friends baby died at 6 months old........

What Makes a Mother

I thought of you all, I closed my eyes
and prayed to God today. I asked what makes a Mother
and I know I heard Him say,
A Mother has a baby.
This we know is true. But God can you be a Mother
when your baby's not with you?"Yes you can!", He replied
with confidence in His voice,
"I give many women babies,
when they leave is not their choice."Some I send for a lifetime
and other's for a day.
And some I send to feel your womb
but there's no need to stay. I just don't understand this God,
I want my baby here. He took a breath and cleared His throat
and then I saw a tear.
I wish I could show you
what your child is doing today. If you could see your child smile
with other children and say,"We go to earth to learn our lessons
of love and life and fear.
My Mommy loved me oh so much
I got to come straight here.
I feel so lucky to have a Mom
who had so much love for me
I learned my lesson very quick
My Mommy set me free.
I miss my Mommy oh so much
but I visit her each day.
When she goes to sleep
on her pillow's where I lay.
I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek
and whisper in her ear,
Mommy don't be sad today
I'm your baby and I'm here."So you see
my dear sweet one,
your children are OK. Your babies are here in my home
and this is where they'll stay. They'll wait for you with me
until your lesson is through.
And on that day that you come home
they'll be at the gates for you. So now you see what makes a Mother.
It's the feeling in your heart.
It's the love you had so much of
right from the very start. Though some on earth may not realize
that you are a Mother until their time is done.
They'll be up here with me one day
and know you're the best one.
Written with love
for all the Mother's missing their babies


I looked toward the clouds today
and for a moment saw your face
And wondered just where you have gone
with the hope it's a peaceful place

Did you show yourself to me today
to tell me you're all right?
Or was it just a daydream
playing tricks upon my sight

Then I thought of when you left
still too young to say a word
Yet the look you gave us said it all
in our hearts, your good-bye was heard

You have changed our lives forever
your short time here not in vain
and hope you know we tried it all
to keep you safe from pain

We will always feel the void inside
because you are not here
But each new thought you send our way
let's us know you're always near

So until our journey nears it's end
and we hear the Angels sing
We'll face each new day as it comes
and live off the Love you bring.


Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God had laid, you see
I took His hand when I heard His call
I turned my back and left it all
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joys
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow
My life's been full, I savored much
Good friends, Great children, A loved one's touch
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now, He set me free

Last night while I was trying to sleep,
My son's voice I did hear
I opened my eyes and looked around
But he did not appear.

He said "Mom you've got to listen,
You've got to understand
God didn't take me from you, Mom
He only took my hand

When I called out in pain that night,
The instant that I died,
He reached down and took my hand,
And pulled me to his side.

He pulled me up and saved me
From the misery and pain
My body was hurt so badly inside,
I could never be the same.

My search is really over now,
I've found happiness within,
All the answers to my empty dreams
And all that might have been.

I love you and miss you so,
And I'll always be nearby.
My body's gone forever,
But my spirit will never die!

And so, you must go on now,
Live one day at a time.
Just understand-
God did not take me from you,
He only took my hand.

I just thought I  would share those with all of you...........

this is the poem that my mother in law recited at my baby girl funeral.  This was passed out at her funeral.  I'm sorry for your loss... if you need to talk just write me,  Anita.

                                INFANT- Natalie Grace DeVall
                                DATE OF BIRTH- Dec. 12, 2005
                               DATE OF DEATH- Dec. 12, 2005
                                          A BABY"S SECRET
                                        I'm just a little person;
                                   And I didn't quite make it there;
                                   I went straight to be with Jesus
                                    And I'm waiting for you here.
                                 Don't you fret about me, Mommy,
                                 I'm of all God's lambs most blest;
                                        I'd have loved to stayed
                                              there with you,
                                       But our shepherd know's
                                                  whats best.
                                     Many dwelling here where I live
                                          Waited year to enter in;
                                   Struggled through a world of sorrow
                                   And their lives were marred with sin.
                                   So sweet Mommy don't you sorrow,
                                   Chase the gloom and wipe the tears;
                                    I went straight to Jesus's bosom
                                     May your heartache disappear.

After we put her to rest I was heart broken.  I used to read this and cry my eyes out.  Keep your chin up... they are at peace.  It took me 6 months of anti depressants to come to that conclusion.  I'm praying for you and I'm very sorry for your loss.  God Bless.                                                    Anita Rachelle DeVall
