A prayer for Timothy

Lord, you have blessed us
We know this is so
But the pain runs so deep
It's hard letting him go

He's so tiny, so precious
A blessing for sure
Wishing for a miracle
God's perfect cure

Instead we'll be thankful
For each tiny kick
For each special ultrasound
The clock's slow tick

With our eyes to the skies
We'll most certainly try
To give Timothy to God
Tender tears we will cry

Lord, please be with us
Comfort our soul
In our hearts is left
A special hole

We ask that you fill it
With something so grand
Only you have the power
With your compassionate hand

Please cradle our baby
Like only you can
Take care of Timothy
Till we can hold him again

Written in Love by,

Denise Earnhardt

This poem says it all. There is absolutely now other way to describe the feelings of how hard this will be, but how God will be there for us. Denise, this is the most beautiful poem I have ever read. Thanks you. It won't be much longer now and Timothy will be with us even if it is only for a short time. I will continue to pray. Love mom
