Today it’s been one year since we lost our son Chance. My, how time flies. Not a day goes by that we do not think of our little Chance. He was our first child and we will never forget him. We will always be sad for the loss of him, but we know God is a good God and His reasons are also good. Knowing that helps to ease the pain of losing him. Today Jay, myself, Bonn, my mom, my dad, my two brothers and Jay’s mom all went to the cemetery to put flowers on his grave. It was an emotional time for everyone but there was some happiness in knowing he is in Heaven. Jay’s mom read the poem below. There is also a picture of Chance’s headstone.
An Angel Never Dies
Don’t let them say, I wasn’t born
That something stopped my heart
I felt each tender squeeze you gave
I’ve loved you from the start.
Although my body you can’t hold,
It doesn’t mean I’m gone.
This world was worthy, not, of me
God chose that I move on.
I know the pain that drowns your soul,
What you are forced to face.
You have my word, I’ll fill your arms
Someday we will embrace.
You’ll hear that it was “meant to be,
God doesn’t make mistakes”
But that won’t soften your worst blow..
Or make your heart not ache.
I’m watching over all you do,
another child you’ll bear.
Believe me when I say to you,
That I am always there.
There will come a time, I promise you
When you will hold my hand,
Stroke my face and kiss my lips
And then you’ll understand.
Although, I’ve never breathed your air,
Or gazed into your eyes..
That doesn’t mean I never “was”
An Angel Never Dies……..
