Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Opinion needed on memorial reading...

Can you tell me which of the readings below you like better?  They both make me cry..  I am trying to pick one for the service Sunday.  I think I am leaning towards the second one.  Any opinions would be appreciated!  Thanks girls!

Little Angels
When God calls little children
to dwell with Him above.
We mortals sometimes question
the wisdom of His love.
for no heartache compares with
the death of one small child,
who does so much to make our world
seem wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to His fold.
So He picks a rosebud
before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them
and so He takes but few,
to make the land of Heaven
more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult
still somehow me must try.
The saddest word mankind know
will always be "Goodbye".
So when a child departs
we who are left behind,
must realize God loves children,
Angels are hard to find.

Daddy please don`t look so sad,
Mommy please don`t cry.
I am in the arms of Jesus
and He sings me lullabies.
Please do not try to question God,
don`t think He is unkind.
Don`t think He sent me to you and that
He changed His mind.
You see, I am special
and I`m needed up above.
I`m the special child you gave Him,
the product of your love.
I`ll always be there with you.
So watch the sky at night.
Find the brightest star that`s gleaming.
That`s my halo`s brilliant light.
So Daddy please don`t look so sad.
Mommy please don`t cry.
I am in the arms of Jesus.
And He sings me lullabies.

  • I LOVE the second one.  Thank you for sharing.
  • I cannot read either.  I have tears reading a few lines and cannot see the keyboard.

    Hugs.  I cannot imagine losing a pregnancy so far along.  Losing a baby without delivering was hard enough.  I cannot imagine your pain.

  • I love them both, but the second one got  me crying.

  • I really like the second one too.  I read them in order, and the first one made me cry and I thought that one was it.  But once I read the second one, that one really touched me.
