Lilly Elizabeth

Lilly Elizabeth
born at 38 weeks and 5 days
on 2-22-2010
went to heaven on
after spending 6 days 5 hours and 30 minutes with her family

The Master Gardener
From Heaven above
Planted a seed
In the garden of love
And from it there grew
A Lilly small
That never had time
To open at all,
For God in His perfect
And all-wise way
Chose this Lilly
For His heavenly bouquet
And great was the joy
Of this tiny Lilly
To be the one our Father chose
To leave earth's garden
For One on high
Where lilies bloom always
And never die...
So, while you can't see
Your precious Lilly bloom,
You know the Great Gardener
From the "Upper Room"
Is watching and tending
This wee Lilly with care,
Tenderly touching
Each petal so fair...
So think of your darling
With the angels above
Secure and contented
And surrounded by love,
And remember God blessed
And enriched your lives, too,
For in dying your darling
Brought Heaven closer to you!
