ONE IMPORTANT PERSON!

Quietly inside my Mummy,
slowly, but surely, I grew and grew.
Conceived through Daddy and Mummy's love and prayers,
Created by God just for these two.
I know just how much they love me, 
looked forward to me sharing their life.
Asked for God's Blessings and Love to fill me,
help for them to show me love in a world of strife.
They try so hard to live His Way, 
yet... they are human and sometimes fail.
Constantly they turn to Him for Guidance,
so His Patience continues to Prevail!
We see all their pain and sorrow,
because my birth was not to be...
The road they tread - facing their emotions - is not easy to follow,
through The Holy Spirit, we cry with them - Jesus, God and me!
Yet... their prayers have already been answered,
for God has Filled me with His Love!
My time on earth was confined to Mummy's tummy;
patiently I wait for them in Heaven above.
I am richly Blessed, very Privileged, 
for I know how much my family wanted me...
For through God's Eyes, I can see all their sorrows and pain,
my Daddy's, my Mummy's and my brothers - all three!
They couldn't touch me, or rock me in a cradle;
they couldn't show me off for everyone to see...
But in my short life I knew more caring and loving,
than many in a whole lifetime see!
Mummy loved me through her body and Jesus;
Daddy talked to me constantly.
My brothers were all as pleased as can be,
so how could I not know how much they love me?
People try to tell them I was nothing,
"Until three months it's just a mass of cells!"
Well, we've got news for anyone who'll listen -
from conception I had a soul as well!!!
God Breathed Life into my body,
Jesus Filled me with His Love Divine.
The world outside might want to disown me,
but through my family's love I will shine!
I didn't get to walk upon the earth;
I didn't get to live to ninety-three.
I didn't get the chance of relationships outside my family,
to cause pain, or love, or sorrow -
BUT I AM IMPORTANT BECAUSE I AM ME!!!
