The baby is teething;
The children are crying.
Your husband just called and said "Eat dinner without me."

One of these days you'll explode and shout to the kids,
"Why don't you grow up and act your age?"
And they will.
Or "You guys get outside and find yourself something to do,"
and "don't slam the door!"
And they don't.

You'll straighten their bedrooms all neat and tidy;
toys displayed on the shelf;
Hangers in the closet; animals caged.
You'll yell, "Now I want it to stay this way."
And it will.

You'll yell, "I want complete privacy on the phone -- no screaming!
Do you hear me?"
And no one will answer.

No more plastic tablecloths with stains of spaghetti.
No more dandelion bouquets.
No more iron-on patches.
No more wet knotted shoelaces,
muddy boots, or rubberbands for ponytails.
Imagine a lipstick with a point!

No babysitter for New Year's Eve.
Washing clothes only once a week.
No PTA meetings or silly school plays where your child is a tree.
No car pools, blaring stereos, or forgotten lunch money.
No more Christmas presents made of library paste and toothpicks.
No wet oatmeal kisses.
No more tooth fairy.
No more giggles in the dark, scraped knees to kiss
or sticky fingers to wash.

Only a voice asking - "Why don't you grow up?"
And a silent echo -- "I did."

There comes a time in all our lives
for every single thing
A time to cry, a time to laugh
even a time to sing
A time for joy and happiness
for sadness and for tears
For telling all our special thoughts
or fighting off our fears
A time when we are born
and a time when we shall die
We're never told when those will come
I sometimes wonder why
But right now I see before me
a future full of gifts to give
Because at this very moment
It's the time for me to live


When someone asks us who you are we'll know just what to say.
"Our precious gift from God above, loved more and more each day."
"Our little light, shown to the world, an example of God's grace."
"A blessing and a wonderous joy all in your precious face."
One day, you may touch the world with those little fingers and toes,
And with your heart you'll spread the joy with the love only God knows.
When someone asks us why we care and give you so much love,
We'll tell them of this miracle, our little one from above.
With those little eyes and that little nose,any heart would instantly melt,
But this would only show a tiny bit of what our hearts have felt.
We will always love and protect you, and we will never turn away.
This bond we have is forever strong and shown in every way.
As you grow we'll tell you of the ONE who has kept us strong.
We'll try our best to teach you that with God you can't go wrong.
You'll always have the love we give and we'll always be here for you.
You'll always have our open arms and we'll carry each other through.
We want you to know how much we care, but there isn't a single word.
Listening with your heart is the only way it can be heard.
There are so many who love you and know how special you are.
Their prayers are always with you even if they live so far.
Now, if it seems like things aren't right, or you're in a little despair,
Please don't worry, we'll all make it through, there are plenty around who care.
And even thought you are so small there is SO MUCH there to love,
So never forget how special you are, our precious gift from above.

I am so warm in here, mom, inside your watery womb
It's also very dark, but I'll see you very soon
I know you've been waiting long, mom
Just to see my face, so I'll just help along
But I think you'd better brace
They say that it's too early, what does all this mean?
They say that few have made it, from what they've so far seen
But I can prove them wrong, mom, and I'll do it just for you
You won't beleive your eyes, when you see how big I grew
I guess the time has come, no more you'll have to wait
I think I've changed my mind
But now it's just too late
I don't know where you are, mom
They took me so far away
I am so cold and scared, so I'll close my eyes and pray
I heard a pretty voice, and knew that you were here
I am still here too, so wipe away your tear
I guess that I was wrong, mom
As you can easily see
I'm not that big at all
Why your hand's as big as me!
I think that I can do it, but I'm so small and frail
And all that they say is that only time will tell
So for now just pray that I'll be one of the few
Tell daddy that I love him, mom
And know that I love you.

"Hurry up" I always hear you say,
"Or I'll leave you behind."
I hear those words the whole day
long, and though you are so kind
Most all the time I wish just once
I'd hear you softly say,
"Just take your time to tie your
shoes or finish up your play."
The world is all so new to me,
time has not dimmed my sight.
And all around there's things to
see that fill me with delight.
Don't catch me up in your round-
rush pressures I can't stand.
Just slow down and look around,
and then you'll understand.
Please let me take the time to look,
to listen, and to climb.
I'll miss some things along the
way if I hurry all the time.
For some day you'll say, "Hurry up!"
when you're walking down the road.
You'll turn around and I'll be gone...
Cause I hurried up and growed!

"May I Go Now?" Author Unknown/ Copied from a post on the Preemie-l Discussion Forum.....
In Loving Memory of Nicole L. Gregory who went to live with God on Jan. 16, 1998

May I go now? Do you think the time is right?
May I say good-bye to pain-filled days and endless lonely nights?
I've lived my life and done my best, an example tried to be,
so, can I take that step beyond and set my spirit free?
I didn't want to go at first. I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now to a warm and loving Light.
I want to go. I really do. It's difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can to live just one more day.
To give you time to care for me and share your love and fears.
I know you're sad and are afraid because I see your tears.
I'll not be far--I promise that; and hope you'll always know
that my spirit will be close to you, wherever you may go.
Thank you so for loving me. You know I love you too.
That's why it's hard to say good-bye and end this life with you.
So hold me now just one more time and let me hear you say,
because you care so much for me, you'll let me go today. is the best Christian Book Store and is honored to be a supporter of Nicole's Poetry Page.
