By Joe Pawlak in memory of Izaiah Lee Anthony Fair
I love my mommy and daddy, they are the best
They love me very much, though their patience I did sometimes test.
I don’t want to see them cry or be sad
Instead, I hope they remember all the fun we had
I gave them all my love and I can only guess
How much was returned in happiness.
I know you mourn my passing, grieving you must
But let this knife be dulled by trust.
I love you both, but God tells me I had to part
He will bless the memories within your hearts.
I won’t be far away though this life is done.
So when you need me – call – and I will come.
You won’t see or touch me, but I will be near.
Listen with your heart to feel and hear
All my love - soft, warm and clear.
God knows how much my leaving has hurt you –
He will help you ease that awful pain.
God tells me you’ll take care of one another, and you’ll never be alone.
Because you hold me within your heart, I’ll always be home.
* I know your Izaiah was a precious and loved child. I invoke poetic license and write primarily from Izaiah’s perspective. I pray you may find solace in this poem and know you and your family are in my thoughts. Close
