3: MEMORIES | Nothing’s as sweet as Jaron’s nose, Except perhaps his ten, tiny toes. He was born without much hair, His eyes still closed, and skin so fair. While some babies are born when the time is right, Jaron had to put up a strong fight. Some babies are born and meant to stay, While others, like Jaron, are taken by God away. No matter how long your baby was here, I know you will always hold him dear. This is because it’s love that lasts, Not physical beings from the past. What matters is the love that’s in your heart, A love that will last and will never part. Although Jaron left us, he’s not quite gone, His love is present whenever the sun is shone. In every rain drop and breeze on a summers night, Lives the memory of Jaron being held tight. Please know that whenever you need to cry, When you feel lost, confused and can only ask why, That God is with you and will guide you through, And has given your baby a life anew. | Love for Jaron - By Auntie Tonya

8: ________________ | August 3 to August 8, 2012 | The little one we longed for was swiftly here and gone but the love that was then planted is now a light that still shines on. And though our arms are empty our hearts know what to do. Every beating of our heart says we will remember you. | JARON
11: You're just a small bump unborn, in five months you're brought to life, You might be left with my hair, but you'll have your mother's eyes, I'll hold your body in my hands, be as gentle as I can, but for now your scan of my unmade plans. I'll whisper quietly, I'll give you nothing but truth, If you're not inside of her, I'll put my future in you. You are my one and only. You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight, And you'll be alright. You're just a small bump unknown, you'll grow into your skin. With a smile like mine and a dimple beneath your chin. Finger nails the size of a half grain of rice, And eyelids closed to be soon opened wide A small bump, soon you'll open your eyes. You can lie with me, With your tiny feet When you're half asleep, I'll leave you be. Right in front of me So I can keep you safe. You were just a small bump unborn for five months then torn from life. Maybe you were needed up there but we're still unaware as why.
12: TWINKLE TOES
13: We were sad to see you leaving, Barely time to say goodbye. You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why. We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday and the day before that too. We think of you in silence. We often say your name. But all we have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake, with which we'll never part. God has you in His keeping, we have you in our hearts. We shed tears for what might have been. A million times we've cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly. In death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place no one can ever fill. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go alone For part of us went with you, the day God took you home.
15: The world may never notice if a rosebud doesn't bloom or even pause to wonder if the petals fall too soon, but every life that ever forms or ever comes to be touches the world in some small way for all eternity. | ANGEL BABY
17: The virtuous though they die before their time, will find rest. Length of days is not what makes age honourable, nor number of years. This is the true measure of life; understanding that this is one’s grey hairs, an untarnished life, this is ripe old age. They have sought to please God, so God has loved them and they have been taken up. Coming to perfection in so short a while, they achieved long life; their souls being pleasing to the Lord, God has taken them quickly. Yet people look on, uncomprehending: it does not enter their heads that grace and mercy await the chosen of the Lord, and protection, his holy ones. Wisdom 4:7-15

21: I'll lend you for a little time a child of mine, God said. For you to love while he lives and mourn for when he's dead. It may be six or seven years or twenty-two or three, But will you, till I call him back, take care or him for me? He'll bring his smiles to gladden you, and should his stay be brief You'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief. I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return, But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn. I've looked this world over in search for teachers true, And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes, I have selected you. Now will you give him all your love, nor count the labour vain, Nor hate me when I come to call to take him back again? God fancied that he heard you say, "Dear Lord, Thy will be done, For all the joy Thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run. We'll shelter him with tenderness, we'll love him while we may, And for the happiness we've known forever grateful stay. But should the angels call for him much sooner than we've planned, we'll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand."
