In Loving Memory of
Travon Christopher Green
April 26, 2000 - May 26, 2000
People dream about angels, but I held one in my arms.
He Only Took My Hand
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 day,
The moment 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,
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 all and miss you so,
And I'll always be nearby.
My body is gone forever,
But my spirit will never die.
And so, you must all go on now,
And live, and understand...
God did not take me from you,
He only took my Hand.

I Thought Of You
I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday, and the day before that, too.
I think of you in silence, I often say your name,
But all I have is memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake, with which I'll never part.
God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart.
I shed tears for what might have been, a million times I've cried.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still,
In my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn't go alone,
For part of me went with you, the day God took you home.

Travon was born on April 26, 2000 at 2:32pm. He was born at 25 weeks gestational age and weighed 1 pound 2 ounces and was 11 3/4 inches long. He was so beautiful to me and everyone else who saw him. He will always be beautiful in my eyes!
Travon fought very hard for life. There was a lot of obstacles that we went through in his 1 month of life. He tried so hard but on May 26, 2000 his mommy couldnt take it anymore and decided to let him go and be with God. I know God will take care of him for me and I will meet up with him again someday.
*I miss you so much sometimes its unbearable, but I know you are safe and happy and watching over me and your brothers.*
"How softly you tiptoed into our world
Almost silently, only a month you stayed.
But what an imprint your footsteps have left upon our hearts"

A Letter To God
by Bonnie Walsh
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 new day.
I guess I didnt hear you Lord
When you said, 'This one can't stay'.
I trust you Lord, they will, not mine
Yet I cant 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 wasnt ready Lord
To Let my baby go.
There wasnt time for one last hug,
There was no final kiss.
Oh God, its all those special smiles
That I already do miss.
So Lord could you do just one thing
For me especially?
Please hold my angel close to You
And say goodbye for me.
An angel in the book of life
Wrote down an infants birth
And mentioned as he closed the book
....... too beautiful for earth.
WE DO NOT NEED A SPECIAL DAY
We do not need a special day
To bring you to our minds.
The days we do not think of you
Are very hard to find.
Each morning when we awake,
We know that you are gone.
And no one knows the heart ache
As we try to carry on.
Our hearts still ache with sadness
And secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know.
Our thoughts are always with you,
Your place no one can fill.
In life we loved you dearly;
In death we love you still.
There will always be a heartache,
And often a silent tear.
But always a precious memory
Of the days when you were here.
If tears could make a staircase,
And heartaches make a lane,
We'd walk the path to heaven
And bring you home again.
We hold you close within our hearts;
And there you will remain,
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again.
Our family chain is broken now,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

Travon's brothers having fun...Matthew was almost 6 months here
and Kobe was 4 years old in this photo.
this is the babyland where Travon is buried at. Every Memorial Day and 4th of July we decorate all the babies' graves with flag pinwheels. We feel we have to memorialize them also. Plus it's fun to do, and everyone that goes to the cemetary loves to see it. It made the front page in the paper the first year we did it :). It makes us feel good that we can do something in memory of Travon.
And this is what we do :)
To Sheri and ANGEL TRAVON
The pain I feel
It is always a tug
I have to believe it's you
Giving me that special hug
Yes Mom it is me believe it
Giving you that special touch
Although you can't see or hear me
I want you to know I still love you
And when GOD calls you home
Again Mom we will be together
I can't wait, I know you can't
Then and only then it will be
My Heart truly goes out to you
ANGEL TRAVON REST IN EVERLASTING PEACE
