If only I could kiss your lips and breathe life into you, like that first day we met.

May 5, 2005

But it wasn’t me who gave you the breath of life that day, was it? God ordained that day for you to live. His Spirit flowed into you, and you opened your eyes and gasped and cried.

If only we could have kissed your lips and breathed life back into you, that day you died.

But it wasn’t us who had the power to save you, was it? God ordained that day for you to die. His Spirit called yours home, and you closed your eyes, and we gasped and cried.

The day you were born and the day you died… those days stand out in our memories. But the days in between, those are the ones that really count; the days that you lived, and laughed and made us love you, and changed us all.

Thank you for writing that beautiful poem T. I miss him every day. Even though I know he's with God, it still hurts because we so badly want him here in our arms.

I have his picture next to my desk and each time I look on his face, I
pray for you, Leann & Danny. The Holy Spirit will comfort you aching hearts because you are God's children and He loves do I.
