Baby's Farewell

Baby's Farewell

I’m sorry I went so soon today,
I left without so much as a kiss.
I was told, though my stay was short,
I am already missed.
I want you to know I’m safe and sound,
that my spirit lives on in peace.
I am grateful for the chance you gave,
I look forward to the day we meet.
My gifts were the purest paths in life,
never having stepped foot on land.
Arriving in the warmth of your womb,
Departing in the palm of His hand.
(1997)
