On the Occasion of Our Son’s 1st Birthday

Words aren't coming easily today, the one year anniversary of Ezra's death. I wrote this poem weeks ago in anticipation of his birthday tomorrow.

Please remember our son, our Ezra Malik
He lived 8 months in his mama's belly
He lives forever in our hearts

Please remember our son, our Ezra Malik
Speak his name always, as nothing brings us
More joy than to hear his name out loud

Please remember our son, our Ezra Malik
He is and will always be our firstborn
Your grandson, nephew, cousin, friend

Please remember our son, our Ezra Malik
We are his mama and his papa
Honor that we are parents too

Please remember our son, our Ezra Malik
Born sleeping August, 30, 2008
Precious and loved always

Gal aka SuperMommy said...

I've been holding you so close all day, feeling Ezra floating around in the butterflies in our flowers. Knowing you were unveiling his headstone, instead of watching him smear cake frosting on his beautiful face. Sending so much love, and so much heart - hoping to help you hold this just a little bit. I know you know you are not alone. You will always be Ezra's mommy and he will always be your firstborn son. Always remembered. Love you, Gal
