Little Snowdrop

I found this poem a few weeks ago. I included it on Bryston's page over at ToWriteTheirNamesInTheSand, I read it and instantly fell in love with it. I just wanted to share it with everyone.

Little Snowdrop

The world may never notice if a Snowdrop doesn't bloom,

Or even pause to wonder if the petals fall too soon,

But every life that ever forms or even comes to be,

Touches the world in some small way for all eternity.

The little one we longed for was swiftly here and gone,

But the love that was then planted is a light that still shines on,

And though our arms are empty our hearts know what to do,

Every beating of our hearts says that we love you.


And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:18

I love the line "the little one we longed for was swiftly here and gone" - Akul was the fruit of years of yearning and he was gone so swiftly. I am sure this is true for all our beautiful angel babies.
