"Sweet Lily"

I remember the first time I heard your heart beat
And started feeling kicks from your precious little feet
I knew that your life was a gift from the Lord
One that was to be cherished and adored

How close I had come to that fatal mistake
But I knew that your life was not mine to take
Through the turmoil and questions
broke God's gentle voice,
"Will you entrust me with this child, with this choice?"

Sweet Lily, my girl, I love you
So pure and so innocent,
kept from this world
Through laughter and tears
I will not forget
Sweet Lily, my beautiful girl

As you grew within me, my life was transformed
God's Spirit renewed, washed clean, and restored
Where once there was emptiness, now joy overflowed
I watched in great wonder His pattern unfold.

Then came the day you were to arrive
anticipation, nervousness building inside
Then time seemed to cease, those words filled me with dread
"I'm so sorry, she's no longer with us," they said

You entered this world so peaceful, so still
so perfectly formed, so beautifully real
I kissed you, cuddled you, held you so near
A lifetime of moments, so short, yet so dear

My girl, through your life God worked His design
He used your existence to alter mine
And though it's so painful you're not here with me
I'll treasure your life, mother your legacy

Lily Katherine, my beautiful girl...
