Poem for Deklan

Where I am now mama,

Is filled with love,

There is no pain, no hurt, no fear

Just love,

On the wings of a butterfly,

I was carried up to heaven,

Into the bright blue sky,

Even though I was not yet seven,

My aunties up here,

They take care of me well,

And they want everyone to know,

It's ok to scream, cry, to yell,

Because to lose your baby,

Your gorgeous growing boy,

Nothing can ever heal that wound,

So please know mama,

There's nothing but love here,

But I wish I could be back with you too.
