Matthew Neal Clark In Memoriam
In Loving Memory of "Our Precious Son" "Forever Young" MATTHEW NEAL CLARK February 4, 1987 - February 18, 2003 It's so hard on this day, realizing that you have gone away. We want to give you a birthday kiss, but we can only remember all the things we miss. The day you came to us time stood still. The day you came to us our hearts were filled. We loved you from the very start, you stole our breath and embraced our hearts. Such a tiny little body with lungs strong and true. Your own unique voice letting us know it's you. Ten little fingers, ten little toes, light brown hair and a button nose. Big blue eyes for the world to see, we were given a miracle, your dad and me. When you wrapped your hand around our fingers, you put such a smile in our hearts. Everything became clearer, we realized what life was all about. Our lives together had just begun, you were part of us our precious son. Our minds were filled with thoughts of you. We daydreamed of the things we'd share, like late night bottles and teddy bears. Like first steps and skinned knees, bedtime stories and A,B,C's. When we first saw your precious face, we prayed your life would be touched with grace. We thanked God from above, for you His masterpiece and promised you unending love. Each night we laid you down to sleep and gently kissed your head and cheek. We would linger at your nursery door, each day we loved you even more. Through misty eyes we would dim the lights and whisper "I Love You" every night. As mother, dad and son our journey together had just begun. You came into our lives just like a song, but ever so sadly you did not stay very long. The moment that we knew you died, our hearts were split in two. One side filled with memories, the other side died with you. Remembering you is so very easy, we do it every day, missing you is a heartache, that never goes away. We wish we could see you one more time come walking through the door, but we know that's impossible, we won't hear your voice anymore. We know you can feel our tears and you don't want us to cry, but our hearts are broken because we can't understand why someone as precious as you had to die. Now as you are cradled in God's hands above, we know you are sleeping in the shadow of His love. You wait for us in Heaven instead of us waiting for you, it's not the right way around, it's not the norm that's true. Our precious son we always said we gave you life. The reality is you gave us life. So until the day arrives when we celebrate your birthday together again, know that we will forever treasure this day and you! With Our Eternal Love, Dad and Mom "143"
