Jennie and her husband, David tragically lost their 9 month old baby girl, Matilda Mae to SIDS three months ago.
The support I have witnessed from the blogging community for Jennie and her family has been truly amazing and it never ceases to amaze me how everyone rallies around to give their love and support to their fellow bloggers (who in most cases have become friends) in whatever way they can.
I have wanted to comment on posts, or send a message of condolence to Jennie, David, Esther and William but somehow it hasn't felt right. I am one of those who came across the blog because of their loss and so I have read from a distance sending out as much healing and love to the family as possible.
However, in recent days I have felt the urge and the want to do something for Matilda Mae, particularly as today would have been Matilda’s 1st birthday. And it is also today that Jennie, David, Esther and William will finally lay her ashes to rest.
So, I would like to honour Matilda with this poem. Rest in peace MM xx
For Matilda Mae
Fly sweet angel, spread your wings and fly
This world has now released you, back to God’s embrace
Your presence has been felt far and wide
You have touched so many hearts
Many have never known you but feel your everlasting spark
Like a firework you've touched us
With your beauty and your colourful, sparkling smile
That penetrates deep inside us and touches us to our core, our soul
Rest in peace now sweet angel, you are loved both here and there
And know that when the time is right, you will all be linked together once more
Keep shining your bright light sweet angel, we honour you today
As we wish you safe passage on your voyage across the sea
