Need a poem of a baby girl that has passed away

My friend's 4 1/2 month old sweet baby girl has just passed away - never ever leaving the hospital since she was born. My friend is looking for poem to put in a memory book - any poems would be greatly appreciated as I can't think at this moment.

  • When God calls little children

    to dwell with Him above,

    We mortals sometime question

    the wisdom of His love.

    For no heartache compares with

    the death of one small child

    Who does so much to make our world,

    seem wonderful and mild.

    Perhaps God tires of calling

    the aged to his fold,

    So He picks a rosebud,

    before it can grow old.

    God knows how much we need them,

    and so He takes but few

    To make the land of Heaven

    more beautiful to view.

    Believing this is difficult

    still somehow we must

    The saddest word mankind knows

    will always be "Goodbye."

    So when a little child departs,

    we who are left behind

    Must realize

  • "You were taken on angel's wings

    As you sweetly and quietly slept

    And returned to heaven before we knew

    That you had even left

    Our hearts are heavy and sorrowed

    That our time with you was so brief

    For you were our gift of heaven's light

    That is now replaced with grief

    But not so much that we won't be grateful

    For every second you were here

    You filled our hearts with so much joy

    Treasured memories we'll hold forever dear

    And though we weren't blessed to see you grow up

    We were blessed to see you smile

    And hold you lovingly in our arms ..."

  • You Were The Pride Of Our Hearts

    "It's so difficult to let you go

    Though death's left us no other choice

    We're mourning the loss of never seeing you again

    Of never hearing your precious voice

    It seems that in life there are certain times

    Which are more than "simply unfair"

    When our hearts search out for better answers

    But cannot seem to find them there

    And such is the case at your passing

    Contemplating the briefness of your life

    All the great things that you still would have done

    If you'd been granted a little more time

    It isn't difficult to envision the possibilities

    For look at what you'd already done

    The difference you'd made in so many lives

    In all that you had beco

  • "Perfect!"

    I had waited for you for a long time.
    Did you know I was there?
    Could you here me?

    When you came into my life,
    It was perfect, you were perfect.

    I had never felt this love before.
    I never will again.

    Your tiny hand, just the right size,
    to grip my finger.
    Blue, unfocused eyes.


    You didn't cry.
    How still you lay.
    I had never loved before that day.
    "One hour", I heard them say.

    I smiled and smiled.
    I rocked you gently.
    So tiny.

    I sang you a lullaby
    As I touched your tiny feet.

    I carried on singing,
    Even as I felt your last heartbeat.

    Untouched by the world you entered,
    Untouched you should leave.
    One moment of true love.


    I didn't write this...I found it on a poetry website
