Happy Birthday Angel

Our little angel would have been four yesterday. Instead, he's celebrating in heaven. We miss you, Sunshine!

Below is a little poem I found -- In remembrance of Aydan. . .
I looked toward the clouds today
And for a moment saw your face.
I know that you have gone
To such a peaceful place.

Did you show yourself to me today
To tell me you're all right?
Or was it just a daydream
Playing tricks upon my sight?

Then I thought of when you left,
Still too young to say a word.
Yet the look you gave us said it all,
In our hearts your goodbye was heard.

You have changed our lives forever.
Your short time here not if vain.
I hope you know we tried it all
To keep you safe from pain.

We will always feel the void inside,
Because you are not here.
But each new thought you send our way,
Let's us know you're always near.

So until our journey nears its end,
And we hear the angels sing.
We'll face each new day as it comes
And live off the love you bring.

I stumbled across your blog, and had to leave a comment to let you know I am so sorry for your loss and the pain you've had to endure. We lost our son, Liam (we almost named his Aydan!!) in October of this year. A pain no one should have to endure. Happy Birthday, little Aydan! I am sure that you are having a fantastic celebration in heaven!
