November’s Poem

Little curly-headed cherub
You came to bless us in so many ways
You reminded me to play in the rain
And jump for joy
Showed us that God lives in our hearts
And the God’s heart is different colors
Each color being a country
Your presence helped us to love
each other more
You came with such fanfare and pizzazz
but then left us so quickly
Left us accidentally
You didn’t mean to go, Jamie
And all we learned from your
Being here, is easy to remember
But so hard to live
So hard to live without you here
