A Lilly Poem

Below the lily flower picture is a sweet poem that Lilly's Uncle D. wrote right after she passed away.

Thank you D. !

Lilly by D.J.G.

Lilly God lent us a little angel, named Lilly, for a while
We watched her grow, and watched
her learn to coo, and laugh, and smile.

He chose the perfect family
And placed her in their care
Sister, Brother, Mother, and Dad
The best, beyond compare.

Some of us were privileged,
to hold this child so sweet
We felt her gaze, held her hand,
And kissed her rosy cheek

So many held her in their hearts
In places near and far
Because Lilly’s face is the type of face that
Facebook was made for.

When God looked down He was pleased
With the love this angel had sown
In His wisdom He said it was time
For Lilly to come home.

We will miss her, and we will cry
But maybe our tears will stop
When we remember, Lilly is in heaven
Celebrating Christmas there, with Pop.
