Poem for our son, Logan

Postby forlogan » Mon Nov 22, 2004 06:57 pm

I told some of you a while back that I wrote a poem for our son. I am no writer, but since losing him had a strong urge to write down my feelings somehow. One day it just came to me and this is what came out.....it appears on the box that his ashes are in inside his grave...

Heaven Sent
For Logan
May 16, 2004

You entered in to our lives
A miracle made from love.
We knew that you were Heaven sent
A gift from our Lord above.

You came into this world
So small and so soon.
We held your tiny little frame
And said goodbye to you.

We gazed into your perfect,
Tiny little face.
We know that we will see you
In another time and place.

You will live on in our hearts,
Forever there, you’ll be.
For a lifetime we will miss you,
But we know your soul is free.

So soar with all the angels
And our loved ones up above.
We give you back to heaven now,
Our miracle, with love.

Love, Mom
