About losing a child, depression, the deserts of our life

It was a very long year
Of deaths and dreary days
My feet became leaded
I could no longer plod along
Without a deep reflection
Connections made and unmade
Like a bed unfailingly forgotten
The sky was painted every hue
From crimson to steely grey days
They were all the same to me
I thought I knew you, but now
You are only a memory
Dead, cold, stiff in the ground
My soul went wandering
Far out in the world
Eyes closed, stumbling
Into a thunderous roar of a storm
The whole year started
With our baby dead
And ended with me half dead
The New Year rang in with me
Feverish at 104, begging the ferryman
To bring me finally home
The Tempest sighing and then relenting
Having let out all its fury
And, in the end,
My soul laid open and empty, rainswept

Very touching indeed, I was at my nieces side along with her husband when they were told that her baby boy was still born. This little guys name was Caleb. I held his little body in my arms in their room at the hospital and as I looked down upon this precious little boy with his little blue stocking cap, I could hear the Angels weeping. But at the same time rejoicing as they were watching and waiting for Calebs arrival into Heavens gates and into the arms of Jesus Christ. "Suffer not the little children to come unto me, said Jesus for such is the kingdom of Heaven." I had the honor of performing little Caleb funeral service. To this day I will never forget that precious little boy, or his wonderful caring parents. They just recently were blessed with another little baby boy, I am pleased to say he is doing just fine! When God closes a door, he opens a window. I pray you find peace and comfort in these words my dear C. Nichols Yours truly Author Garry E. Lewis
