A Letter to Our Angel Baby
You were but a tiny baby,
No more than just a flutter.
You filled our hearts with glowing joy,
And we love you like no other.
We long to cradle you in our arms,
And sing you a lullaby.
Kiss those soft and rosy cheeks,
Comfort you as you cry.
In just weeks time God called you home,
Leaving our sad hearts warm.
He loved you most of all,
And brought you home to Jesus' arms.
You were so precious, as perfect can be,
Too beautiful for earth.
You stayed with us for just a moment,
Then unto heaven, an angel we gave birth.
Our love for you is everlasting,
As you're in our hearts with us.
And now and for forever,
Our baby you will be.
