We remember.


For Nisa
by Stephanie Marottek

Adam.....oh Adam
my precious baby boy
how I miss you and long to hold you
and buy you baby toys.

It's been so long now
yet it's only been a year.
Sometimes I think I can't go on
and I cannot breathe thru my tears.

I wonder what life would be like
had you lived and not died.
And I know I couldn't have saved you,
even though I would have desperately tried.

I think of you and Emma
and what the two of you would do.
I am sure I would be exhausted
running after the two of you.

What I wouldn't give
to have you back today.
But that cannot happen
and so I just pray.

Oh God, Oh God
please comfort me
I cannot handle all the thoughts
that swirl through my memory.

Adam.....Oh Adam
I sure do miss you today
as you celebrate your birthday
in that Heavenly place you play.

We think of you daily
and know that God holds you near,
but until we meet again,
I am not without a tear.

Happy Birthday Adam!!
