Little one

Little one so soft and sad
receptacle of heaven
your joy we could not contain

I am reeling
I am feeling
across this barren space

Little one lost in the snow
crystals of heaven closed around your heart
Chance by your side, keeping you warm

I am reeling
I am feeling
my alcove has grown a little smaller today

Little one with a life that never had
Oh but for a smile! My life would replace yours.
But now the breath has stopped
we weep.
