Little Natalia

Of all sad words
of tongue and pen,
the saddest are these,
"It might have been."

Ah,well! For us all
some sweet hope lies
Deeply buried from
Human eyes

And in the hereafter
Angels may
Roll the stone from
Its grave away

She might have been named Natalia
after her great grandma.
She might have been 7 months old by now
or she might have been born next April.
She might have grown up to be a warm, kind,
generous, funny, beautiful woman full of love,
smiling just like her mom.

She might have been a great teacher of young minds
like her grandparents, uncles and aunts.
She might have been a great musician
like her cousins.
She might have been an artist
like her mom and me...

Thanks Ole Blue...The first few days after our loss were the toughest, but we will live to laugh again.

hey! that was so beautiful and heartwarming and at the same time so sad and heartwrenching. i don't know what to do to ease your pain, our pain
except to say that we must move on no matter how heavy our feet are. life goes on.......
