My friend Howard and his family sit by the bedside of his daughter, who is in the final stages of ovarian cancer, waiting for the angels to come for her. Praying for her suffering to end, yet not wanting her to go. Through my tears, I wrote this for him. Namaste.

Sweet Babe of Mine


Dream sweetly child

Of happy days

When life was bright

From youthful gaze

When laughter filled

Your lovely face

And your arms reached up

For my warm embrace


Through years of trials

And motherhood

Your life, though brief

Has brought much good

You touched my heart

And eased my strife

While you brought such joy

Into my life 


As a tiny babe

Held in my arms

You unlocked my heart

With your loving charms

My life was changed

When you were born

And I have loved you so

Even through my scorn


Though I must say to you


I pray my love

Will hold you tight

As you sail away

To the next plateau

Know I truly hate

That you must go 


May roses and blessings

Mark your way

As you leave this place

And drift away

Please keep me close

Stay by my side

And with gentle whispers

Be my guide

Sherry, such a beautiful softly written poem to help lift some of the burden that those parents are feeling...Love and light to your friend's daughter and family. It is a very sad time for them, but the suffering is ending and she will be with her higher power and become part of a universal light that will shine and protect her loved ones.
Much peace, love, and light,

This is a very sad poem written because of sad times. The way this is written shows the love of a parent for her child even though the child will not be with them much longer. But the Angels of heaven have been sent, and she will be one of them soon.

This has very vivid images, and it speaks from the heart of a passionate love from a parent to the child. I also agree withe verything everybody has said before me.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love and who love you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

Tears. So hard for a child to go before a parent. Not right. Not natural. Lost my sister in '98 to Leukemia. My mother has never stopped grieving. Part of her died with Cheri. With your permission, will print this out and place it at my sister's grave. This is so beautiful, Sherry! This should be published. What a precious gift for your friends. May God comfort them in their sorrow...Lin

I can't imagine - this comes as close as I want to find out - heartbreakingly penned, with love and compassion - well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

No matter how I try, I am completely unable to imagine the depths of sorrow that can be endured by a parent watching a child fade away. Such pain is unfathomable and yet you have written about it bravely, head-on and with such understanding and compassion, Sherry. I am sure your words carry a spiritual weight that will strengthen, comfort and succour those who grieve and mourn this darling baby's loss - you included. Bless you and thank you for sharing this intense moment with us. My prayers are with you. xxx

To pray for a soul who suffers within this world is to show compassion...even more so when we pray for their deliverance unto the hands of Angels guiding them to the Light...
