Today is another sad day. You may have already read that a dear friend of mine lost her daughter when she was 23 weeks pregnant just a few weeks ago.
Today Florence is being laid to rest to sleep peacefully forever.
I have lit a candle for her and my thoughts are with her Mum, Dad and brother today.
Here is a little poem for her that I read and liked:
If tears could build a stairway
and thoughts a memory lane
I'd walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again
No Farewell words were spoken
No time to say good-bye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why.
My heart's still active in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one can ever know.
But now I know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store.
Since you'll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you'll always stay.
God knows why, with chilling touch,
Death gathers those we love so much,
And what now seems so strange and dim,
Will all be clear, when we meet Him.
I Knew you for a Moment
Rest in Peace Sweetheart x x x
