For Darcy

Three years ago today our baby, Darcy, went to Heaven’s nursery. Our dreams were shattered and we struggled to pick up the pieces. I thought one day this would get easier and maybe I’d forget the date or something, but really how can you forget a piece of your heart? I don’t feel like writing a lot today. Instead, I want to share the lyrics to a song. A friend had this you tube video on her blog. It is a song called I will Carry You written by Angie and Todd Smith. Todd is a member of the Christian group, Selah. They recently lost a baby girl and Angie has a blog sharing their baby girl's story. This song is just amazing.   There were photographs I wanted to take Things I wanted to show you Sing sweet lullabies, wipe your teary eyes Who could love you like this? People say that I’m brave But I’m not Truth is I’m barely hanging on There’s a greater story, written long before me Because he loves you like this. I will carry you While your heart beats here I will carry you Long beyond the empty cradle Through the coming years, I will carry you All my life I will praise the one who’s chosen Me to carry you Such a short time, Such a long road All this madness but I know That the silence has brought me to voice And he says….. I’ve shown her photographs of time beginning I walked her through the parted seas Angel lullabies, No more teary eyes I will Carry You While your heart beats here Long beyond the empty cradle Through the coming years I will carry you All my life I will praise the one who’s chosen me

To carry you.

Dearest Darcy, Even though I only carried you for a short, short time. I'm glad that I was able to carry you. I'm glad that you will forever me a part of me and I know one day I'll finally hold you in my arms and I'll carry that dream in my heart until I do.  I love you baby girl. Love, Your Mommy
