In Heaven Tonight by Anne DiGeorge

From the day I got the news
That you were growing inside,
I watched you getting bigger
And I beamed with pride.

I painted your room baby blue
I looked forward to your arrival,
My checkups were always good
I never questioned your survival.

Oh I long to sing you a lullaby
And rock you to sleep this night,
How I wish you were here with me
Cradled in my arms tonight.

Before I could even hold you
The angels took you aflight,
To be with our Lord and Savior
Up in Heaven tonight.

Oh, how my heart is aching
Oh, it surely is breaking.

You are my sweet baby boy
That will never ever change,
Going home with empty arms
Indeed will be very strange.

Nothing can fill this awful void
No child can ever replace you,
I'll still sing you a lullaby
This whole night through.

I'll never understand the reason
Why you were taken from me
I must trust in the will of the Lord
For the future's not ours to see.

Oh how my heart is aching
That I'll never kiss you goodnight,
I hope angels are singing you a lullaby
Up in Heaven tonight.

I'm assuming this was about your son? If so,,I'm sorry, and thank you for sharing such a painful experience. I hope in writing this it brought you even just a moment of peace. Again, I'm sorry!

This poem was written a few years ago and yes, it was about her first child. I put some photographs in this hub and published it for her since it was sitting in her unpublished section. There are many unpublished poems, short stories and medical articles that we hope to publish in the coming year.

Sorry for some reason last night I wrote the first comment then my computer went a little crazy, I hadn't realized it already posted the first comment and typed a new one. Technology definitely is not error proof.
