A Poem of Faith

For almost nine months we waited for you...
Dreaming, and planning and shopping, too.

We looked forward to that special day
When we could bundle you up and carry you away.

But we had to say goodbye before saying hello-
Letting go of our dreams of watching you grow.

We had never felt such pure love and grace
As we held you in our arms and kissed your sweet face.

Then somehow through the pain and tears
Your spirit came and calmed our fears.

Now in your arms you'll carry us through
Until that beautiful day when we again hold you.

We will feel such joy as we look in your eyes,
That love and laughter will replace our cries.

And together we'll kneel at Our Savior's feet,
Knowing at last that our family's complete.
