A Sonnet for Emily

My youngest sister, Amy wrote this beautiful sonnet for me, in honor of Emily Faith. I am so blessed to have a family that wants to honor the little life that left us too soon.  

My Ladybug

On this Monday I sadly remember
The sweet expected due date of her birth
For her my heart will always be tender
Emily Faith was too early for earth.

Fighting since the minute of arrival
Resuscitating for hours on end
The Doctors gave up hope of survival
Not even a day, Emily has friends

Prayers upon prayers comfort our souls
Point fifteen ounces, thirteen inches long
The long hospital hours takes a tole
I am sadden that you are really gone

God has plans for his little lady bug
A chance will never come for us to hug 


Do I Have to Be a D.I.N.K.? said...

What a beautiful way to remember your sweet Emily. I cried reading it! HUGs to you!
