Happy Birthday To Our Own little Angel

He would have been six today

Being nearer to the hospital?
Or some other factor?
That we can never change
So now
I remember you
Every morning
Then shoulder the burdens
Of life
And the joys
Of your brothers

  1. Lovely child, such heartbreak to have him such a short time. Thanks for sharing. Thanks, Scott, for visiting me today. I haven’t seen you for a while. But I have been cutting out a lot of reading because of eye problems, Back to doing more now, so I followed you back from seeing likes on my haiku.


  2. Scott – the love of a father shows through. I too found this relatable. My wife and I had 4 children and buried two – one in in infancy and one just short of his tenth birthday. I’m 75 now and still bear the scars.

    Regards from Florida.
