Flowers For My Baby


I miss you. Tell me you’re okay.

Since I found you encompassed

Two weeks prior

In the gruesome sorrow of death’s embrace.


I never thought

That once again

I’d bury my hopes

With another child;


Life with you

Was fun and vibrant,

Full of feeling,

Loving, wild;


I know you’d want me

To be tough-

To continue on

Life’s lumbering pace;


To focus on living,

To cherish your memory,

To center myself on love,

Not hate.


Though I don’t understand

What happened that night

When the reaper came

To the call of fate,


I know you’d want me

To persevere,

To feel your love

From Heaven’s gates.


I am broken,

I am wrenched,

My aching soul

Screams your name;


But somehow I know

When I’m old

I’ll be in your happy

Presence again.


Life’s not fair,

Life’s a test

Of wading through fear,

Sorrow and blame;


Show me your mercy,

Send me your trust,

That we’ll be reunited

In Heaven again.
