My Greatest Lullaby

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.
Corinthians 13:7-8

Joseph,

This morning, in the quietness of the early hours, when the world around me was just waking up – you came to me. I felt your arms around me, my sweet darling boy. Before I opened my eyes, the tears began to flood me. But you were there to comfort me. To hold me, to love me and to show me once again that love never dies.

I felt Daddy’s hand reach mine, he felt you too. Praying together, we knew you could hear. Joseph, I can hardly believe it has been three years since we said goodbye here on earth. Three years but feels like only minutes. Time passes but not the love I have for you.

You may not be here, but your presence is ever so strong. Your guidance strengthens me, teaches me and allows me to move with grace. To listen. To be present. To not be afraid. You took my broken heart, nurtured it and have spread it back to me; showing me a new life. A new love. Showing me hope. Slowly you move through me, bringing me back up, like a whisper in my heart.

I looked at the sun rising out my window, filling the trees with its glory. I soaked in the light and my heart danced in tune with its joyful rays. With heavenly love, all around you, be free my sweet boy and fly and watch me sing my greatest lullaby.

Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles await you when you rise
Sleep sweet baby do not cry
and I will sing a lullaby

He taught me a new kind of Love. My Son. My Angel above

Love,
Mommy
