Day Four: I Will Carry You...

There were photographs I wanted to take
Things I wanted to show you
Sing sweet lullabies wipe your teary eyes
Who could love you like this?
People say that i am brave but I`m not
Truth is I`m barely hanging on
But there`s a greater story
Written long before me
Because He loves you like this

So I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All my life
And i will praise the one who`s chosen me
To carry you

Such a short time
Such a long road
All this madness
But i know
That the silence
Has brought me to His voice
And He says

I`ve shown her photographs of time beginning
Walked her through the parted seas
Angel lullabies no more teary eyes
Who could love her like this?

I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All your life
And I will praise the one who`s chosen me
To carry you

My sweet Leila Grace:

I will spend each moment we have loving you, holding you, carrying you and giving you life. I won't let you go before God says it's time. I put all my faith in Him and his will. He gave me a special baby like you for a reason. He asked me to care for you, to nurture you and to lift you up to Him when the time comes. I will do what He has asked of me.

I have more love in my heart for you than I ever thought was possible,
Your Mama

  3. So touching Emilee. You're right. God chose you to carry her until she was ready to be with him. And what better choice than you? Sweet, loving, nuturing, caring and such an amazing mom. She is just as lucky to have you as you are her. Hang in there. The journey is a hard one, but one worth it in the end.
