For this week’s Wednesday Words, I am reposting an earlier poem I wrote, by request from Jennie of the blog Edspire. So some of you may have read this before, but not on Wednesday Words.

Jennie tragically lost her beautiful baby Matilda Mae to cot death, on 2nd Feb 2013.

In support of the charity FSID, which is changing it’s name to The Lullaby Trust, Jennie is hosting a linky for all bloggers willing to write a post on the theme of lullabies. For any of you wanting to read the posts or take part, visit Jennies post on The Lullaby Trust.

#WednesdayWords is still on as usual for you to link up your quotes, poetry, prose, short stories and lyrics below. If you wish to take on the Lullaby theme for Jennie too – then even better.

I represent to you, the poem I wrote for Jennie… 

TWINKLE TWINKLE MATILDA MAE for Jennie, David, Esther and William.

 

Twinkle twinkle Matilda Mae
Did you have fun in heaven today?
You shine so brightly over the sea,
the prettiest star in the sky to see.
Watching your family all day long,
smiling at them through natures song

 

Twinkle twinkle Matilda Mae
Did you have fun in heaven today?
Did you show the angels your magic smile,
clapping excitedly all the while.
Flapping your own beautiful wings,
knowing there’s wonder in all of Gods things.

 

Twinkle twinkle Matilda Mae
Did you have fun in heaven today?
Crawling all over the cotton wool clouds,
laughing and cooing baby babbling sounds.
Your sweet laughter fills the heavy air
and answers every human prayer.

 

Twinkle twinkle Matilda Mae
Did you have fun in heaven today?
Blowing kisses to your big bro and sis,
making sure they catch them and never miss.
They may not always see your love,
but feel in their hearts, their sister above.

 

Twinkle twinkle Matilda Mae
Did you have fun in heaven today?
Sending angel cuddles to daddy and mummy ,
stroking the place you were in her tummy.
Wiping away all sadness and tears,
trying your best to calm their fears.

 

Twinkle twinkle Matilda Mae
Did you have fun in heaven today?
You are missed so much, here on earth,
a tribute to how very much your life was worth.
You sit hoping that soon we will not cry,
as you wave happily from the sky.

 

Twinkle twinkle Matilda Mae
Did you have fun in heaven today?
We see you in the stars and bright sunbeams ,
as you show us light, from dark, it seems.
You are in all the colourful rainbows
and the love from here to you, forever shows.

 

Twinkle twinkle Matilda Mae
Did you have fun in heaven today?
We must trust you are at peace now,
but never forgetting us, no way no how.
Tell us about your happy times, whilst we sleep,
and in our dreams, your memories we’ll keep.
