Baby, You Left Us...

Baby, you left us
and no one would ever
know that you were here,
if not for these gray hairs
and a trail of tears.
You were with us
for such a short time
after your birth,
but, oh, how you changed
the way we look at
our time here on earth.
You showed us that each moment
is a gift to treasure,
and how a child's pure love
is a joy beyond measure.
And though our meeting was brief,
I hope you somehow know
that you left behind
a bit of heaven's warm glow.

"Baby, You Left Us," written and designed by Bobette Bryan, 2002
