For Klea & the Scott family.

In memory of Michael Harris and Thor Gage Scott...who both passed away from SIDS this year.

Angel of Light


The Angel of Death

kissed my baby’s head

and left my heart in ruins…


The Angel of Light

who gave him life

came to take him home last night.


My heart weeps for him.

My soul yearns for him,

and my arms ache for my son;


but the Lord of all

will not let me fall

and will hold me in His arms!


His heart weeps for us.

His soul yearns for us,

and I believe that maybe


His arms must have ached

for my little one,

and that’s why He called him home…


I know he will rest

in our Father’s arms

until I’ve finished my test.


and I can take comfort

and feel peace knowing…

We’re both secure in His arms.

A test I pray, Lord, I never have to take this one!
This is so, so sad, Cryssa...and yet, like many feel, here, a comfort, pats at you, stroking our breaking hearts, knowing this was God's call, and we must know His sound will keeps us sound!
His decisions are none to question...the test is done in pure silence and our teacher is watching! We cannot cheat life...therefore, hold your gifts gently, for grasping is not of His nature...Somehow, we must let go! I still can't even imagine!
Bless you for this...and may you and yours, mine and all the little children be Blessed in His arms, the living and the lost...

I loved your form here too!
Love and Peace~

Hello Cryss,

Every line speaks of unspeakable pain and yet, it also speaks of extraordinary comfort. You got my heart aching and my eyes misty on this one, Cryss. A beautiful tribute.

May 2009 bring you good luck, peace of mind and everlasting love.

Be well,

This is too sad, too beautiful to describe. Your words wrapped themselves around my heart Cryssa.

Peace and light.

A real beauty-I know this may sound weird as you are speaking of a baby, but this is how I felt when my cat died some years back. I had him for 15 years, and as he passed in my arms, and I felt his spirit go to God, it changed my life. You captured that same kind of feeling here and it brought back such warm feelings, thought sad, for me when reading this. Merry Christmas and blessings to you for a Happy New Year. Michelle

Beautifully written, from the heart of a mother. Our eternity began in the Father's eye and He will have what He will have and we must be restful in His knowing and in His arms.
Better said than done, yes.

Absent from the body, present with the Lord. Those little ones get a free pass to paradise. This is a lovely poem revealing a deeply held emotional bond to the Scott family concerning the loss of two dear ones of tender age.

Blessings, and thank you for sharing this with us via such a poignant write.

You have done this beautifully in your inimitable way, Cryssa. You are gifted at these two-part, two-tone-and-voiced poems that seamlessly blend and weave often conflicting and agonising emotions. Many of us can relate with our own baby losses, and each is a total devastation. But you bring us through to a glorious hope and redemption with your final lines. Bless you, and I wish you peace amidst your loss. I'm so sorry for this pain. xx
