A Little Piece of Us in Heaven
By Pam Bortner 
There is a little piece of us in Heaven,
Part of us has already made it there.
Daddy’s nose, Daddy’s Cheeks, Daddy’s feet,
My hands. Does he have curly hair?

Our best parts are already in Heaven,
For he was beautiful.
You see, it is our son who is in Heaven.

He had a short, but special, life here on earth,
But God chose to have a little piece of us
Up in Heaven with Him.

We know you will do all the things that his
parents cannot do.
We know you are holding him.
“God, please hold us, too!”
