For Monty Q.'s Little Sprout

Tragically gone, at the age of three months, with deep condolences to the family of Monty Q.



"Part of Me..."

I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and the day before that too.
I think of you in silence. I often say your name.
But all I have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake, with which I'll never part.
God has you in His keeping. I have you in my heart.
I shed tears for what might have been. A million times I've cried.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly. In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place, no one can ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn't go alone.
For part of me went with you, the day God took you home.

That was a beautiful tribute. This has really hit the cat blogger group pretty hard. Mom has crying since she left me and found out about little Sprout.

This is so sad! I am so sorry for the loss of such a beautiful little girl.

Mickey said...

That is by far one of the best verses I have read. It pretty well sums up all of our feelings. Even now,all I have to do is look a Sprout's picture and I cry.
None of us knows how long we have .All we can do is be good to each other and love those you hold dear.
My heart aches for her family.
((((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))
