For Ever in our Hearts
This is our little boy Benjamin Michael
that the Lord gave us for a short time.
Now he is in Heaven and we will see him
again.He was born April 30,1987.
He was 9lbs and 5 oz.
He went to heaven on May 1,1987. We love you Benjamin
April 30,1987-May 1,1987
There are days when
I don't want to get up,
Lie in bed like a lot of folks do;
Then I turn my ear toward heaven,
I hear a voice and I know that it's you!
Saying, "Mommy, don't worry,
I'm with God and I suffer no more;
I'm the angel that beckons you to hurry,
And brave life that's beyond the front door.
He said that He's proud of you Mommy,
And, He knows you did your best;
You were heart-wrenched each time that I suffered,
Though as parents, He says you past the test!
Jesus tells me dear Mommy,
That it wasn't to be understood;
Why the life that we all shared together,
Was short... although still, it was good!
When all the doctors had given up on me,
I left your arms though 'twas against your will;
That's 'cause God had already healed my body,
And had plans He wants me to fulfill!
You see, Mommy I've never really left you,
And Mommy, I'm right by your side;
I'm the angel God gave as your son,
And the same one who'll now be your guide!
I was there with you Mommy, when you suffered,
And, I'll be forever with you, Mommy,
Because God tells me to be your light!
So when days seem dreadful and dreary,
Or if darkness should cover your path;
Just remember, I'm right on your shoulder,
To lead you safe home without wrath!
Jesus wants you to come and join me,
Where we'll run and we'll play with no pain;
So do everything please, Mommy,
For I'm longing to see you again!
I can run up here Mommy,
And I never get short of my breath;
Now I understand why Jesus called me,
And no longer look on it as death.
It's so beautiful here, Mommy,
There are sights you may never behold;
And its true... like you've heard in the Bible,
We run on streets that are paved of pure gold!
Oh, the flowers, you'll love them here Mommy,
And Mommy...the rivers run crystal clear;
So just remember dear Mommy,
It's me... Benjamin Michael's voice that you hear!"
"I'm waiting for you Mommy, along with Jesus to
carry you home!"
When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had those precious years.
I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you have shown,
But now itís time I traveled on alone.
So grieve awhile for me, if you must,
then let your grief be comforted by trust.
Itís only for awhile that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.
I wont be far away, for life goes on.
So if you need me call, and I will come.
Though you cannot see or touch me, Iíll be near,
And if you listen with your heart, youíll hear
All my love around you soft and clear.
And then when you must come this way alone,
Iíll greet you with a smile and say, Welcome Home.
