R.I.P. Little Baby

Little Baby

You were born, just 4 pounds
Doc said “no problem, safe and sound”
Take him home, give him love
Of course he’ll grow
He’s just tiny, look at you, little baby
Brought together, so many people lately
Little, sickly, not growing, why?
No one thought you would die
All the screaming, something wrong
Just give him meds, move along
You had so many hospital visits
Eventually, bad prognosis, negative
You won’t walk or talk they said
“That’s okay” mommy said, and kissed your face and kissed your head
Mommy, Daddy, Grandma, Grampa
Auntie, Uncle, and cousins, too
We all pledge to take care of you
Every day, you get weaker
All the pills, appointments many
Still no answers what is wrong
Maybe this, maybe that, so many tests and biopsies
I look at my own baby son and think what might have been.
Two boys, two cousins, will be best friends
The end came sooner than anyone thought, though
The tubes, the wires, you’re sedated
Little baby, getting tired
Sweetie, it’s almost time to rest
You’re so loved, we did our best
Mommy, Daddy, they’re still trying
You did too, you went down fighting
Little baby, your hands are blue
Your mommy held you til you didn’t move

Love, DawnBlogtopus

      Thanks Melissa. It’s been pretty rough. He is having a ceremony of life with ash scattering this afternoon in Hawaii, where his grandma lives. 😢
