lullaby prose, for Ayla

{My dear cousin Julie and her baby girl, Ayla}

My lullaby tonight is for another babe, one who is soon to return to her Father in Heaven.
Her time was too short for those of us left here.
Our hearts ache, our tears flow,
Perhaps our minds question why.
Tonight I pray for your sweet mother,
Whose goodbyes are tender and broken.
Let angels sing sweet lullabies,
Let angels' presence fill your room with light.
My prayers tonight are with you, precious babe,
As you leave this world for a sweeter one.
Wait for your mother as she finishes her work,
For she will continue to sing you lullabies.

Oh how heartbreaking! I can't even imagine the anguish. What happened to sweet Ayla? How old is she?

Please pass on to Julie how sorry I am, Ayla looks so sweet. What a heartbreaking process.

I never did thank you for this Charlotte. I was re reading this tonight. I am grateful that you loved me so much that you feel my pain in a way. I'm glad you have Asher, because babies are the best source of joy :)
