A butterfly lights beside us
Like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment
Its beauty and glory belong to our world
But then it flies on again;
And though we wish it could have stayed
We feel so lucky to have seen it.
The Angels whispered in the night,
As they quietly took Austin to the light.
So gently and caring, they came to bring him home,
As God opened his arms to welcome him there,
In Heaven he said, "He Belongs."
The angels laughed and sung, with such delight,
For a young Angel, named Austin, will fly tonight.
No more pain or suffering, he shall see,
Only peace and happiness there will be.
The people left behind, will feel the pain,
the absence of his love, the sweet sound of his name.
For to us all, he left his love,
But God needs him now, above.
He shall soar in Heaven now,
With golden wings and Angel's love.
As he whispers, "Thank you God, for freeing my soul
and allowing me to
"Please tell all below, I'm happy now
and I'm glad I knew their love"
"But here in Heaven is where I wish to Be!"
Angel Wings You Wear
Written by Dolly Lee
The day you left us broke our hearts
and the tears felt like rain,
but knowing that you now have wings
helps to ease the pain.
We know now when the snow falls
it is Angel dust from you
and when we see a shooting star
our Angel just passed through.
The rain drops do not make us sad
for they are not tears,
but sprinkles of LOVE falling down,
our Angel again is near.
The winter cold has even changed,
Jack Frost no longer exists,
It's now a visit from our Angel
and he's left a special gift.
You also visit in the night,
your wings flutter with grace,
we know now when we awaken
that an angel has kissed our face.
When the days are warm and bright
and the sun shines from above,
we feel the warmth wrapped around us,
you've given an Angel hug.
You are with us at all times,
every day and night,
you try to end the pain we have
and the tears that we still cry.
Though Heaven is your home now,
and Angel wings you wear,
you stay close to those you love,
until they join you there.
A Letter to God
You sent a child to me
To fill my life with joy,
And only You knew which was best~
A little girl or boy.
Somehow I took for granted
That we would have a lifetime.
And I made so many future plans
For that precious child of mine
Enchanted by that Miracle.
Caught up in each knew day.
I guess I didn't hear you Lord,
When You said "This one can't stay."
I trust You Lord, Thy will, not mine
Yet I can't understand
This sudden loss~The emptiness~
Caused by another's hand
I know my child's an angel now
But my heart is aching so.
I'm sorry I wasn't ready Lord
To let my baby go.
There wasn't time for one last hug,
There was no final kiss.
Oh God, It's all those special smiles
That I already miss.
So Lord could you do just one thing
For me especially?
Please hold my angel close to You
And say goodbye for me. Amen.
By Bonnie Walsh
There is nothing more excruciating
Than saying goodbye to your baby.
How do you fit a sixth birthday party,
Baseball practice, temper tantrums, Christmas,
Braces, first date, high school graduation,
And a temple marriage-
A lifetimes worth of love and joy and sorrow
Into thirty minutes, or an hour or two?
How do you plead with God for your child's life
But say- and mean
Thy Will Be Done?
With a million I Love You's, a favorite story,
Kisses and hugs and promises to be with you soon,
And a final bath
Of Mommy and Daddy's tears.
And with a gently lullaby.
by Leanna Moore Watson
When I Must Leave You
When I must leave you for
a little while
Please do not grieve and shed
And hug your sorrow to you
through the years
But start out bravely with
a gallant smile;
And for my sake and in my
name live on
and do all things
Feed not your loneliness
on empty days,
But fill each waking hour
in useful ways,
Reach out your hand in comfort
And I in turn will comfort you
and hold you near
And never, never be
afraid to die
For I am waiting for
you in the sky
Child of Heaven
Written by R.K. Cecil
Child of heaven come to earth,
You just could not stay.
This world could not hold you
And so soon you went away.
Like a rare and precious rose,
Your lovely soul can't die.
Budded here upon the earth,
Now it will bloom on high.
You are a child of heaven
And will forever be
In the arms of Jesus
For all eternity.
Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade,
because one loved is gone.
Those we love can never be,
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is a memory,
they live on in our heart.
