GOODBYE LILY KATHERINE
In my daughter's womb
Grew her gift from above.
We readied a room
For her wee one to love.
On our merry way rejoicing
To a glorious celebration.
Expecting our flower’s arriving
Jesus' tears hid the sun.
God had bid her go
Before we said, "Hello."
Goodbye budding life.
Goodbye shattered dreams.
Goodbye precious babe lying still in our arms.
Goodbye sweet nursing and soft cries.
Goodbye to rocking and lullabies.
Goodbye wonder and curiosity.
Goodbye to kissing who you would be.
Goodbye to hearing "Dukes" and "ma-ma" too.
Goodbye to discovering wonderful you.
Goodbye snuggling you to our hearts.
Goodbye tore our lives apart.
Goodbye to our pure Lily Katherine.
