6 months closer to you, Noelle

6 Months (from Mom)

We walked to your marker in the ground a recent afternoon
We noticed an October flower bud that will never see this earth’s April bloom
But you helped us see new meaning in death
We’ll follow you soon

We walked to your marker a recent afternoon
Longing and peace were our covering—as if two fibers miraculously woven from former gloom
You helped us see new meaning in death
We’ll follow you soon

We walked to your marker a recent afternoon
Already stamped like hope in the sky was the night’s silver moon
You helped us see new meaning in death
We’ll follow you soon

We walked to your marker a recent afternoon
We felt eternal wind like a burst from Christ crushing doom
Noelle, what could be more beautiful than declaring we love Him and His life dearly more because of knowing you?
We’ll follow you, our dearest Noelle, soon

6 Months (from Dad)

O dear Noelle, we miss you

You are 6 months old today

And yet age no longer defines you

Now a thousand years are like a day

For you went ahead of us

Into our Savior’s loving arms

Safe, secure, and rejoicing

Spared from all of sin’s harms

Your Mother and I are waiting 

To meet you at heaven’s door

To praise our Redeemer together 

Where tears are no more
