Our Beloved Son

Our Beloved Son,
You will be missed a ton.
A baby so cute who had his Mother's button nose,
And his Father's fingers and toes.
A child so small,
Amounts to being so tall.
By many you will be missed,
As he sits in heaven waiting to be kissed.
Our Son who has been taken above,
Who will fly high as the doves.
As he lives forever in out hearts,
His love for us tops the charts.
As this wasn't an easy deal,
It will be hard to heal.
It will take a long while,
As you are our child.
We love you our Dear Son,
Don't forget we miss you a ton.

About this poem

I remember writing this poem on a napkin in the hospital the day after I delivered my stillborn son. The baby I had always dreamt about and the sorrow of loosing him. I want to lend a hand to other parents that may have went through a similar situation
