When a Child Dies Unexpectedly
Start writing a post

In memory of Levi Lozano

Little hands, little feet, little moments,

My mommy raised me in her womb for 9 months

Then, it's time for me to say hello to the world,

When I grasp my mommy's hand,

That's when I learned the value of love

Even though all I could do was stare into her eyes with wonder,

And her eyes into mine

She was perhaps scared but happy,

For I gave her the role of being a mother

And I her son

I gave her sisters and her brothers the title of Aunties and Uncles

With my beautiful blue eyes and my infectious smile

Oh and of I being their nephew

I was the center of their world

When God created me, He did not make a mistake,

He gave me my mommy, my daddy, my aunt, and uncles, and friends who loved me

Then one day, I heard God said,

"It's time to go."

I wrestled with this thought

In my little brain

But my mommy and daddy need me!

But my aunt and uncle loved me!

I don't understand.

"God, will there be toys?"

"Yes", he said.

"Okay"

Then I was tired and I went to nap.

I am only two years old!

Or younger!

God has taken me Home.

Please remember me Mommy.

Please be strong for Mommy, Daddy.

Please be there for Mommy, Aunties

To my uncles, please be there for everyone

My grands, I love you and I will forever be your little grandson

With my blond curls and big smiles,

That's how I want to be remembered.

Mommy, please don't cry,

Look for signs of my presence,

And know that I am still alive in your heart,

I love you Mommy

I know I went to my Heavenly Home much too soon,

But Mommy, you are a gift to me

And one day, I will have siblings or more,

Hopefully.

Mommy, I love you, please don't forget me.

I'm up here safe in the Lord's arms.

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.
