Our Angel, Carter Samuel Tesch
By Stephanie Byrne and Chad Tesch, mom and dad 
In memory of Carter, January 27, 2005 – March 20, 2005 
Sorry I didn’t get to stay
To laugh and run and play,
To be there by your side
I’m sorry I had to die.

God sent me down to be with you
To make your loving heart anew,
To help you look up and see both
God and little me.

Mommy I wish I could stay
Just like I heard you pray,
But all the angels did cry
When all they told me was goodbye.

God didn’t take me because he is mad,
He didn’t send me here to make you sad
But to give us both a chance to be a love so precious ....
Don’t you see?

Up here no trouble do I see
And pretty angels sing to me.
The streets of gold are where I play,
You’ll come here too, Mommy, someday.

Until the day you join me here
I’ll love you, Mommy dear.
Each breeze you feel and see
Brings love and a kiss from me!
