It seems like only yesterday
I got home from school
To find Mom frantically searching for Dad
You were READY to enter this world.
I was anxious and nervous
Would I have another brother or
Would I have a Baby Sister?
We knew the answer would be soon.
The first time I saw you
Lying in your bassinet
So small, so fragile
Yet beautiful and full of life
We were all in love at first sight!
I taped ribbons to your head
So frustrated that others
Would refer to you as a boy
My mind screaming “Would a boy wear pink?!?!?!”
You were my shadow
Forever beside me….never giving any space
Especially when we visited Grandparents!
I can still feel you curled up against my back
No matter what I did
You would sleep NO other way.
Oh! To relive those precious days!
My heart aches
I cannot help it.
You had only just admitted
To the most wonderful event
Of the terrific man in your life.
I…we….were so proud of your accomplishments
First in Class as Graduate of Law School
Making huge impressions on your new law firm
The promise of such a bright future!
Yet…God chose to call you home…
The Angel’s hand you did grasp
To rise into the light
The peace…the tranquility
The overwhelming love
In being united with all those gone before
To be present before our Lord….our God.
I once again see those beautiful blue eyes
That bright smile
The kiss upon the precious forehead
Of the shell that had housed
My most, beautiful, wonderful, precious, Baby Sis!
