DID YOU WONDER?
I kissed your sweet face
Saw your trusting smile
Saw the love reflected in your eyes
And wondered all the while
Did you really know what you were missing?
Did you wonder why you couldn’t talk?
Did you wonder why you weren’t like others?
Did you wonder why you couldn’t walk?
Did you wonder at the tear in mom’s eye?
As she talked to you and cared for you
Did you wonder at the gentle smile?
As she said, “I love you”
I don’t know if you wondered these at all
I don’t know if it would have mattered to you
For you had known gentle love and care
And you smiled no matter what you’d been through
I will tell you what I wondered for you
I wondered what it would be like to hear you talk
I wondered at how very special you were
I wondered what it would be like for you to walk
I will tell you something I knew
You were a special gift from God
He gave you breath and a wonderful spirit
And I know He was with us this path we had trod
I knew no matter the hardships endured
He was with us every step of the way
He had a special purpose for us
And He would call us home someday
My sweet little boy, now in heaven
He is holding you and you see His smiling face
He has healed you and made you whole
Saying well done, you have run your race
Rest now Michael, safe in His arms
You are now able to walk, talk and run
Keep him safe for us Lord
Until the day our race is done
And I hope to hear from our little boys lips
Thank you for your love and all you have done
For though our hearts are sore
Someday we will join him in heaven with Your Son
So for now my sweet little boy
We will love you Michael and miss you
Trusting in our loving Saviour
Until we are reunited with you
I had written this poem differently a couple months ago, I rewrote it for the service Celebrating Michael's life. He passed away suddenly 2weeks ago today. I miss my little sweetheart.
