A baby rattle among the reeds

In Loving Memory Of My Son Scott
Aug.3, 1967 - Feb. 8, 2008

Curiously he opens the baby rattle to see
What miracle makes those sounds for me.
Amazed, when he beholds what's inside.
Holding out both hands side by side.

Unveiling seven tiny hardened seeds
Made from wood growing among the reeds.
Stands the tree from where the rattle came to be
Like seeds of the tree creating him inside of me.

The veil between Heaven and earth
Lifted, to give me God's gift, a son to birth.
Weaving him from His special cloth by hand
For a journey to fulfill His special plan...

You are God's gift to me
I give you back so you can be
Your part of the tree
from where the rattle came to be.

My Son

Carole, you have me all choked up and I am so deeply and profoundly sorry for the loss of your son. Your loving, ever caring words shine in this piece for him. My thoughts and prayers are with you....

Be always safe,
