I already bought you Piglett, Tigger and Winnie the Pooh
The cradle that your mother slept in was waiting for you,too
Your dad was so excited and so was your big brother Kris
Maw and Paw and Pop and I couldn't wait to give you a kiss
Mike and Jenn and all the kids were happily waiting for you
They knew that to your mom and dad,that you were a dream come true!
I know that RuthAnn would have spoiled you,and so would both the boys
We were all waiting to shower you with all our love and your toys.
But,Katie..you came so briefly and you were just not able to stay
Like a butterfly lights on a flower and then gently flutters away.
Now all our hearts are broken and we are missing your sweet little
face...No other baby in all the world will ever take your place.
but we'll be waiting Katie..as the autumn leaves fall to the ground
Then they'll give way to snowflakes that flurry all around.
And as the seasons change you'll wait in the heavenly sky
When winter gives way to springtime,you'll again be our butterfly..
I sit here and reflect on the last two weeks and wonder if I am strong enough to make it thru...
It is so unreal to me..like I have been having a nightmare and just wanna wake up!
I am feeling a little stronger each day..and I will be able to share the details soon...
Katie weighed one pound and 4 ounces she was 11 and 1/2 inches long born @ 2:09 am on Friday October 30,1998 She was just too tiny ...born way too soon She was a very pretty baby... she lived only one hour. I think my heart is broken...
If anyone has personally been thru a similar situation ..please let me hear from you...Dianna626@aol.com thanks
