Alessa Rose

Alessa Rose

stillborn on july 25 2008

There is a wee girl
who won't grow up at all.
Did your angel bear her gently
because she was so small?
I wondered that you bothered,
it's such a long long way,
from Heaven to a parent's heart
and then not let her stay.
Forgive the tears and pleading
and bitterness we've shown,
we really did not understand
that she was just a loan.
We forgot in all the sweetness
and joy from day to day,
somehow we never really thought
she'd have so short a stay.

James Andrew

James Andrew Warren was born into heaven on November 26, 2008

It is not growing like a tree in bulk,
doth make Man better be;
Or standing long as oak,
three hundred year,
Too fall at last, dry, bald, and sere:
A lily of a day is fairer far in May,
Although it fall and die that night-
It was the plant and flower of Light.
In small proportions we just beauties see;
And in short measure life may perfect be.
