Unfair, it is, so brief a stay
you had down here on Earth.
Unfair to us who knew you,
who knew what you were worth.
We thought we knew that laugh, those eyes,
would one day grow old,
but what we didn't know was we were wrong;
that, we were never told.
So now all we have are memories,
which, though happy, draw a tear,
reminding us how temporary
life can be, I fear.
Let this reminder set us straight;
let your example be our guide.
Take nothing e'er for granted;
be happy, smile wide.
For we know that you would want us
to live as merrily as we can;
treat each day as our last,
to live up to God's own plan.
And when our thoughts choose to stray
on how you touched our lives,
we'll remember the joy with which you lived,
and that with which you died,
knowing Heaven awaited
your flipping, jumping, grinning soul.
We miss is still down here, that smile lighting up the gym,
but we benefited; from knowing you our hearts are full.
We may continue to ache,
for your person from here is gone.
Your tiny frame has left us,
yet your smile lingers on...
Isn't that beautiful? I am so thankful for the people in our life that still love and care about our daughter. It means so much to us!
