Because of His Grace

I’m in the process of planning a memorial for my babies. This has been difficult. I’m finding, though, as time goes on, that things in general are getting a little easier. I’m learning to accept that they were in fact souls; lives lost in the tragedy of the war within me. And I’m learning that forgiveness is a powerful thing.

I wrote this today. I have printed it out and put it inside the box that will contain letters to them from me. The box that will be buried, in an act of submission to His will, that I release them to His perfect care.

Because of His Grace

Your cries never reached me,
Your tears, never found,
To Heaven you went

Without even a
sound.

You’ll not be forgotten,
You’ll not be replaced,
In Heaven I’ll hold you

Because of His
Grace.
