thank you mom

Here's a poem my mom wrote right after Andrew passed. She signed it from us, from I know she is the one who wrote it and I thank her for that (other than the first 4 lines which she readily admits she 'borrowed' from another poem).

An angel wrote in the book of life
Andrew's date of birth
Then she whispered as she closed the book
"Too beautiful for earth"
We weren't prepared to say goodbye
Before we said hello
We couldn't accept not holding you
Before you had to go
We wanted to cuddle you, stroke your cheek
and watch you play
We could never imagine that you
wouldn't get to stay
So remember Andrew, we love you
and that's a special love
we hold you close beside us
feeling your sweetness from above
We will love you forever,
Mommy, Daddy, and Katelyn
