Brandon (twin) died shortly after birth on January 10, 2009 from complications of a collapsed lung.

I long to feel the soft weight of you
to welcome you home
with kisses on silky round cheeks
Instead my arms ache
with the weight of your absence
the empty spaces that were meant
for you to grow into
My love for you
will last an eternity
My hopes and dreams
now carried on fragile wings
of each butterfly passing
Compelling me to pause
to savor each moment
each flutter in my heart
Your wings.
