Balloon release
(c) by Jim Cunningham  

With these balloons,
we remember our infant loved ones who have died.
Death has forced us to let go
Of the children we would hold
As we let go of our balloons,
We send forth a message.
To the community the message is:
Our babies were wanted, were real,
are loved,
And grieved and remembered.
To one another, the message is:
You are not alone.
With support we survive and grow.
To our beloved children we have
spoken of today,
the message is:
We remember you
We miss you
and most of all,
We love you!
