What you would look like with chocolate on your face, or if you would cry when you fell down after taking your first steps?
Did you suffer the day you slipped away or did you fall sweetly into God's hands?
Do you know how much we wanted you and the love that surrounds your memory?
There isn't a day that doesnt go by that I wonder

A Different Child by Pandora MacMillian
There's a special glow around you.
As you grow
Surrounded by love,
Never doubting you are wanted;
Only look at the pride and joy
In your mother and father's eyes.
And if sometimes
Between the smiles
There's a trace of tears,
There was once another child
A different child
Who was in their hopes and dreams.
That child will never outgrow the baby clothes
That child will never keep them up at night
In fact, that child will never be any trouble at all.
Except sometimes, in a silent moment,
When mother and father miss so much
That different child.
May hope and love wrap you warmly
And may you learn the lesson forever
How infinitely precious
How infinitely fragile
Is this life on earth.
One day, as a young man or woman
You may see another mother's tears
Another father's silent grief
Then you, and you alone
And offer the greatest comfort.
When all hope seems lost,
You will tell them
With great compassion,
"I know how you feel.
I'm only here
Because my mother tried again.
