Sarah Rose Catherine Broeder passed away one month ago today. It is still to unbelievable to us. This is a poem I post today in memory of her. Thanks to the Hirshouers for sharing it with us.

 

 

Mother's Song

 

I've lost my baby daughter,

Though not misplaced.

I feel she's somewhere

Bound by neither time nor space.

Perhaps she sits before the Throne

With radiant face.

She could be dancing happily

Like little girls do

With golden taps beneath

Each precious little shoe.

I know she must love music,

So I'm sure it's true.

I'm grateful that in Heaven

She is healthy and strong

And that she's lulled to sleep each night

By Heaven's song,

But I wish I could hold her;

Is that terribly wrong?

I sang so often to her

While she was with me

And I will go on listening

For her harmony.

How sweet to know

I'll hear it In eternity.
