IN MEMORY OF
JORDAN LEIGH AKHURST

miscarried December 26, 1997 (Boxing Day).
Remembered by Mummy:
A VISITOR CAME

An angel came to earth one day
To take my baby girl back home.
I know the angel didn't want
to Leave me here all alone.

He made so very certain
To leave a portion of my child
To live forever in my heart
To make the time we had worthwhile.

And he'll come back here
Every once in awhile
To refresh those memories
So my heart will have a smile.

At least a smile from time to time
When I remember all the joy
This child would have brought me
Whether a girl or a little boy.


A ROSE IN THE CRADLE

In my mind there's a rose in the cradle
where you Jordan should have been.
A tiny faded bloom and my tears for you,
are laid to rest in this quiet empty room.

Little one, you left too soon for me to hold,
before I even knew your name.
Little one, you left too soon,
but not too soon for me to love.

Now the One who created your delicate form,
has welcomed you into His home,
where no baby cries, or rose ever dies,
and you're cradled as His own.

Little one, you left too soon for me to hold,
before I even chose your name.
Little one, you left too soon,
but not too soon for me to love.

Someday I'll hold you, know you,
call you by your name and take your hand,
when we're together...together again.
