This'll just be a "quickie" post. Anyway, while perusing blog sites the other day, I stumbled across, where they memorialize angelbabies by writing their name in sand. I didn't send in for one of my own, but I did search the site for one (and found two). I thought they were pretty cool:

And then I was inspired to write:

I Wrote Your Name
By Katrina
In Memory of Dylan Gabriel

I wrote your name in the sand,
but the waves washed it away.

I wrote your name in the clouds,
but the wind blew it away.

I wrote your name on the sidewalk,
but the rain drizzled it away.

I wrote your name on a cake,
but the dog ate it away.

I wrote your name on paper,
but it somehow got thrown away.

You wrote your name on our hearts,
where it will never go away.

Aren't they just the sweetest family to do this? We were blessed with the gift of them writing our daughter's name in the sand. I am sorry for the loss of your little one.

Your poem says it all. I think poetry is a wonderful way to express yourself. Thank you for posting your stories too, I have visited and read some, and will visit again. Julie
