A Child’s Goodbye
By Colleen Berry 
Written in memory of Elizabeth, early pregnancy loss at 14 weeks, February 9, 1999 
Hooray! A brother or sister for me.
A new baby to add to the family.

A brother to play ball
A sister and her doll.

We will be a happy family.

One day, Mom and Dad have tears,
I watch them with fear.

They give me a hug and kiss,
Our baby-to-be they miss.

My brother or sister one day
An angel now has flown away.

Our angel we love,
Was called by God up above.

With Mom and Dad, I too am sad,
This is something so bad.

Not an angel did we seek
But a person for us to meet.

One day when God calls me
My angel sibling I will see.

For now I know she is happy to be
A member of God’s Angel family!
