Love Me Enough To Let Me Go
(Child Remembrance Poems)

Your hearts are breaking
I know, I can tell ..
Because you’re my parents
and I know you so well.

As hard as this is there’s
something I need to say ..
I don’t want to linger
please don’t beg me to stay.

My work is done
on earth, here for me ..
Free me from this body
where I will be pain free

Living with God
is my ultimate goal ..
By taking me home
He is making me whole.

The only thing holding
me back, Mom and Dad ..
Is thinking of you
and the good times we had.

You fought for me
when no one else could ..
Refused to give up, when
others told you you should.

You packed a lifetime of love
in my short years ..
Gave me strength to handle
all of my fears.

Showered me with courage
you said, “It’s a loan” ..
While secretly hiding
tears of your own.

You’ve done everything I needed
I couldn’t ask for much more ..
Please love me enough
to help me through that door.

I know you are sad
and it doesn’t seem fair ..
But the time has come
to put me in God’s care.

Since I started the job
I was sent here to do ..
And planted a seed
now residing in you.

I’m sure I can trust
you, to carry my load ..
Please love me enough
.. enough to let go.
