A Poem for Jonah

My friend Karyn wrote this for us after Jonah's funeral. I love it.


Thank you, Heavenly Father, for giving us our boy.
We miss him, oh so dearly, but he filled our lives with joy.

Ten weeks was not nearly long enough for us to get our fill,
But we trust in your eternal plan and have faith to do thy will.

Our Maori warrior is finally, now, standing firm and tall.
With Jonah fighting on our side, we know we cannot fail.

Please tell him now we love him, from his family tried and true.
Thank you for your gift to us, you lost a son once, too.

Thank you, Karyn.
I love it when my boys' influence is felt outside our family circle. It reminds me that even though their lives were short, they touched many.
