Valentine's Day Poem in honor of Lily written by my mother

GOODBYE LILY KATHERINE
By Ginny Bain Allen - 2011

In my daughter's womb, grew her gift from above.
We readied a room, for her wee one to love.

On our merry way rejoicing, to a glorious celebration.
Expecting our flower’s arriving, Jesus' tears hid the sun.

God had bid her go before we said, "Hello."

Goodbye budding life. Goodbye shattered dreams.

Goodbye precious babe lying still in our arms.

Goodbye sweet nursing and soft cries.
Goodbye to rocking and lullabies.

Goodbye wonder and curiosity.
Goodbye to kissing who you would be.

Goodbye to hearing "Dukes" and "ma-ma" too.
Goodbye to discovering wonderful you.

Goodbye snuggling you to our hearts.
Goodbye tore our lives apart.

Goodbye to our pure Lily Katherine.
Goodbye ‘til we meet you in Heaven.

    "The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day." Proverbs 4:18

    The righteous: our sweet innocent babes who knew no sin.
    Their way: straight to the throne room of Heaven
    Ever brighter until the full light of day: each day bringing us closer to Jesus and being with our children again.
