Poem for My Funeral

So now that my huge scare with the possibility of dying following childbirth is over, I look back at the whole situation and it feels like it was all just a huge nightmare. I have a lot of posting to catch up on now that my new little guy has joined our family! The other day, I came across the poem I wrote during that huge scare, I thought that if I died it could be read at my funeral, it still can if I have it documented somewhere where it will be found, let's just hope that funeral won't be for another 50 years or so. My son actually found this and got emotional remembering back to those scary few weeks. I am so grateful to be alive and have my sweet family, they mean the WORLD to me. Well here is the poem...

                                                                 Poem for my funeral
Please remember me when I have gone
when my earthly life is through.
Remember the great times that we shared
when I was here with you.

I will remember my family so dear.
I will miss you so much each day.
When you miss me and are feeling sad
know I am only a breath away.

You may not see me, but I'll be there
watching you learn and grow.
I'll celebrate with you, I'll cry with you,
I love you more than you'll ever know.

Our time was cut short, but it was part of God's plan
this much I know to be true.
We'll have forever to be together
because Christ died for me and you.

I pray you'll feel comfort through the trials of life
and do the best you can each day
and know I'll be waiting to hold you close
when you too return home to stay.
                                                    I love you all more than the words of my heart can express!
