Savannah Rose, 24 years since you went away;
Even though at times it feels like yesterday.
Your voice though faded I can faintly I recall;
But your beautiful face I can remember it all.
That day you cupped my face in your hands;
I did not know that you would be going to Beulah land.
Your last words you spoke to me, was “I love you mommy” with a smile.
One day I will see you again forever, and not just a little while.
Oh sunshine girl I miss you more than words can possibly say;
Still today my heart aches in such an awful way.
I know you are happy without a care or worry in sight;
I am holding on to Jesus’ hand so very tight.
If only I knew that morning we awoke would have been our last;
I would have done things differently and would not have lived life so fast.
I can’t turn back time nor make up for the mistakes I have made;
But I have been given a second chance at life, and given a desire to walk in His Way.

If you have children on this earth below;
Tell them you love them, please let them know.
Once they are gone they do not come back;
Do not take life for granted nor have your child live in lack.
Riches and toys is not what a child needs;
But loving parents, and not word only but in deeds.
Toys can’t correct them or soothe their fears away;
Only a Godly parent can when that child asks you to pray.
Take it from me, someone who knows.
