Remembering Matthias

Today was Matthias' due date, three years ago.

Visitor From Heaven
(from a song by Twila Parris)

A visitor from heaven, if only for a while,
A gift of love to be returned
We think of you and smile.
A visitor from heaven accompanied by grace
Reminding of a better love and of a better place.
With aching hearts and empty arms
we send you with a name
It hurts so much to let you go,
but were so glad you came.
We're so glad you came.

How very softly
you came into the world,
so silent and still.
You stayed only a moment,
but what an imprint
you have left upon my heart.

Matthias Paul Mailly
August 9-10, 2005
Safe in the Arms of Jesus

Remembering you, Matthias, my sweet baby, today, this week, and always.
You will always be in my heart until we meet in heaven.
