Footprints Across Our Hearts
(Grief Poems – Child)

The door is closed, the lights turned off.
a closet standing bare ..
The room that once was waiting
for the child that should be there.

Sorrow wells up inside us
our tears, and endless flow ..
All because we miss the child
the child we we’ll never know.

No camping trips, no soccer games
nor late evening talks ..
No baseball camps or shopping trips
no shaded mountain walks.

We have not even memories
to help through times like these ..
We only have each other
as we go down on our knees.

To plead with you, our Father
to take this pain away ..
To help us know your love
will guide us through each day.

We may never know the reasons
for this terrible tragedy ..
But we can know you love us
through all life’s mysteries.

Our time was far too brief
it was over before its start ..
But our little angel left behind
Footprints Across Our Heart.
