Poem for My Son

First child of my womb,
Quietly you grew, hidden from all eyes.
Why didn't I choose LIFE?
Why did I believe the lies?

Flesh of my flesh,
My baby, forever you'll be.
I'm sorry I chose the wrong way.
I'm sorry I didn't SEE.

Your life was not wasted.
Valued and precious you are.
God is speaking mightily through you.
From my thoughts, you will never be far.

From darkness to light,
You will always be a part of the story.
Our Father in Heaven promises
To work all this together for His glory.

Your name means "light" and "peace,"
My precious little one.
That's what He's brought in all of this.
In Christ, the victory is won!

I promise to be your voice
Until my days on earth are through.
I will never be silent
Until the time that I meet you.

In that moment, 
I will gaze upon your face.
I will hold you, kiss you, know you,
In awe of His great mercy and amazing grace.

Even then I know,
Your legacy will still live.
For He breathes beauty into this story,
And purpose He will continue to give.

I love you my little Lukey.
Thank you for changing me.
Until we meet, my darling,
A forever part of me you'll be.

With all my might, I'll fight in your honor,
Until the battle for LIFE is won.
In my eyes and heart,
You will always be my son.


It is very important for me to do everything I can to honor and memorialize Luke's short, yet precious life. A part of that for me is by writing poems for/about him. This is the first I've written. The first three stanzas of this poem were written on 1-24-12 and the last seven stanzas were written on 12-12-12. It is February now, which is Luke's "Heaven Month." I thought I'd share this today for him...

  7. That was beautiful. Luke is smiling for sure knowing how much you love him and Jesus.

  8. Again, very beautiful.

  9. That's a beautiful poem Hannah! I am sure that God is holding your child in His Loving Arms and that you will be reunited with him for eternity. The circle will not be unbroken. God has offered you enormous grace and mercy, and your testimony for Life will save thousands!
