Malou’s Poem

My brother Zach
wrote this about
Malou
on this date last year.

I bolded my favorite parts.
Thank you, Zachy.

*******

She brought us smiles, she brought us joy,
She brought us ‘topics to letters’ we could all enjoy,
*
She was brought to a sudden end, however,
She didn’t forget to bring us all together.
*
She sent us searching for unique names,
She sent some of us out for baby shopping games.
*
And though we send tears to our cheeks that fall,
We will remember the smiles she sent most of all.
*
She was big in that tummy growing each day,
Bigger and bigger in all the pictures sent our way.
*
With the mom in the photos gleaming ear to ear,
Her dad was so proud you could tell from Denmark to here.
*
She never saw this world of ours
and could only listen from inside,
But now she gets the chance to listen
to all the prayers sent worldwide.
*
And lest we underestimate
the impact she leaves behind,
One tiny footprint visible now
that will only grow with time.
*
She is in our hearts and in our prayers,
She is in all of us as and in all who care.
*
And though it seems that we barely even knew,
We will never be able to forget
*
The Baby Girl named Malou.
