Skyler Edward Aarvig May 2, 1999 -- March 4, 2000 Severe Pulmonary Hypertention Complicated By Major Heart Defect and Down Syndrome
Skyler was a special gift lent to us from God. He taught us so much about life while he fought hard to keep his. He always smiled even when times were
painful for him. Skyler will always be my miracle. I wrote a poem about him I would like to share.
THE MIRACLE OF SKYLER
Have you often wondered if miracles do come true?
I will share with you my story and you will believe they do.
I wished with my heart and I wished with my soul
The greatness of my wish did only God know
My miracle was born to me, I had wished for a son
Skyler was special and second to none.
His soul like a lion with strength for us all,
Would carry us through when his lungs came to fall.
This miracle from God was love pure as could be,
My pain at its passing known only to me.
My son was the greatness God precisly bestows,
To people who live life and are open to woes.
Skyler's smile was as bright as the sun,
He lives deep within me, he whispers my name.
Because of this miracle, my life will never be the same.
