for little miss sprout



oh how empty is this place
for we are missing your sweet smiling face

you only came to visit, not to stay
your flight home could not be delayed

with broken hearts and tears of sorrow
we were left with no hope for tomorrow

finally, we take the time to look around
and we see His comforting touch abound

in the flowers, the sun, the breeze
it is then upon our knees

we feel His love with gentle hands
that someday soon will guide us to a land

and you will be standing there
full of life, love and cheer

o joyous times there will be
reunited you & me


little miss sprout,

this poem is the best i could do. it broke my heart that you could not have stayed longer on this earth with all of us. i wanted to watch you grow just as i watched my own daughter grow up.
