Hi this is Janalee and I have hijacked my sisters blog to put this poem in for her.
I love you Jess and am praying for you.
In memory of little baby Lima that went home to be with the Saviour on 12, June, 2008!
Your aunt Jana loves you!

I dreamed of the day I'd hold you,
Close to my mother- heart.
I knew I'd hold you close
Right from the very start.

I could almost see your tiny face,
And your baby eyes,
Looking up at mine-
Those little angel eyes.

I almost knew your voice,
Even though you'd never cried,
It was music to my heart-
Only a Mother knows inside.

I almost saw your smile,
And I loved you more each day
And counted down the time Till
I'd bring you home to stay.

Each night before I went to sleep,
I'd kneel and pray for you,
And sing softly the songs
I loved I knew you'd love them too.

But my arms are empty still-
I still long to hold you to my heart,
God took you, little one,
But forever you will be in my heart.

God knows each Mother's heart,
He knows their tears,
He understands
The pain that will be there through the years.

He sees the faded hopes,
The broken dreams that lie
Waiting to live again...
Someday by and by.

He heals the broken hearts,
He wipes the tears away
He'll give back their little lambs-
