*Nine Months Later*
Our dreams for you began in March of that year.
Dreams of who you would be.
Thoughts of beginning our parenting career,
Who would you look like - Daddy or me?
The months passed by quick,
And we learned we were having a baby girl!
We fell more in love with you with every little kick,
As we filled the nights with talk of pink ribbons and curls.
Daddy painted your room "Lilly Bean" green,
And Mommy added the finishing touches.
With everything ready we became excited about a baby coming on the scene.
Nine months later, one cool November day,
It was time to meet you, to see your sweet face.
Before time came to see you - you had already slipped away.
We still ache for your, Sweet Lilly - but we rest in knowing you're in a better place.
So rest in the arms of Jesus in Heaven my child...
Until Mommy and Daddy can meet you there.
