I can't believe you're gone

I can't believe that three short weeks before you were to arrive
I found myself in a hospital bed and learned you weren't alive
I still didn't know your gender but I knew you as my own
Thankfully we know our Christ had welcomed you home.

Giving up the dreams of how our life would be
Is so very difficult, I miss you Jubilee.
I had dreams of you with Zoe playing through the day
Kissing and hugging and laughing never far away.

Your sister will miss you my dear
She couldn't wait for you to be here.
She'd lift up my shirt just to give you a kiss
We never imagined it'd be like this.

It's hard to trust when we can't see
But we rest in the fact you're where we'll someday be
We know by His Word we'll be together someday
Until that day comes we will continue to pray.



  1. *hugs* I was glad to read in your other post that (at least some of) the boys welcomed you back with open arms. We are still praying for you.

    That is a great poem. I hope things like writing this help you get your thoughts out and somehow make sense of what is going on.

  2. This is heartrending, but beautiful. I can't comprehend the pain you have now, but I know beyond a doubt that Jesus will make up for this in His kingdom. Your heart will be healed when He returns to make all right. And your family will be whole again. I love you, Amanda. You continue to be in my prayers to our good Father.

    1. Thank you. We appreciate so much the care your family has given us during this time.

  3. God always has a plan that sometimes doesn't seem fair.
    My heart goes out to you all.


I'd would love to know you stopped by. Leave us a message and I'll get back to you!
