A Poem to "Little One"



A Poem to "Little One"
Gary Winters

We had wanted you for so very long,
Or so it must have seemed at times.
Now we know we'll have forever,
to keep you in our minds.

On that joyful day when we learned
That you were on your way,
We opened our home and hearts,
And planned for a permanent stay.

We never saw you smile,
We never held your hand.
You never had your birthday.
How can we understand?

To hear you laugh, to dry your tears,
To share your life each day
To see the wonder in your eyes
As you find your rightful way.

We're told we should forget you,
"You'll have another some day."
Don't they see the pain we feel
Is bruised by what they say?

We never saw you smile.
We never held your hand.
You never had your birthday.
Someday we'll understand.
