Wish I Could Hold You Near~
Talking with my baby girl in Heaven at bedtime...
"How we long to be known to one another..."
And Baby Girl, Mommy loved to know you~
It is a joy~and was~to be your mother
And what a joy to know we'll share a Heav'nly view.
For now I know – only in part– but Then~
I'll know fully e'en as I've been fully known.
And now faith, hope, and love abide~these 3~but Then
The greatest of these – love– will be fully shown!
As you know, I miss you and wish you were here~
And yet~I know you're completely at peace There.
I guess I just wish I could hold you near...
But you oft remind me~now~we can, our spirits share!
Come to me my child~draw near by spirit,
Let your mommy hold you close beside...
That would make me happy to have you near me~
Though~at just the thought of it~I just cried.
Baby, I saw both your brothers today.
It was so sweet to get to hold them near.
We told funny stories of things you'd say;
When we shared your antics, it's like you were here...
So now Baby Girl, I'll go rest and pray
And I'd truly love it if you would curl up near...
P.S. I had a nightmare about you night
before last. I was walking on tiptoe
to not upset you so
you would stay...
I awakened in my agonized state.
I am relieved that your and my spirits
are both at peace with one another today~
I wouldn't have that part of us change in any way!
I am finding God's sweet treasures in grief's darkness~
it makes grief's gloom fill with light :0)
(and it reminds me~I'm to see now~looking with faith's sight)~
So now I'll go and hug you, and my pillow tight!
I will do this so you may know that I am the Lord,
Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.
Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.
