Matthew Neal Clark
February 4, 1987 - February 18, 2003
Matthew is what we named you
On this the day of your birth
Sent straight from Heaven above to earth
Came you our angel for us to love
We held and rocked and kissed you good night
We wrapped our arms around you real tight
We cuddled and nurtured and watched you play
We kissed all your boo-boo's away
We laughed at your jokes and clapped as you'd sing
We told you the joy in our lifes that you always would bring
We cleaned up the play dough and pulled the legos apart
We pinned up your drawings and called it art
We watched you that first day of school
as you stood all alone
We fought back the tears as we made our way back home
We applauded real loud when you were in your first play
We helped you with your homework at the end of each day
We adored and cherished and watched you grow
We guided and taught you all that we possibly could know
We would see you through good times
and help you through bad
We shared in your happiness and cried when you were sad
We held you close and stood right by your side
We watched you for 16 years our hearts filled with pride
Then ever so unexpectedly you died
Gone were those days we used to share
All those days filled with such love and care
Never does a day pass by
That we don't ask the question "why?"
Why did God take you our precious son?
Was it something we had done?
Perhaps one day we'll understand
Why God decided to take your hand
And lead you back into Heaven above
Surrounded by His tender love
We hope to face the Lord one day
And ask Him why you couldn't stay
On earth with those who loved you so
Those who wanted to see you grow
We mourn for the things that we will not see
The fun and games we'll never share
For the special times when you won't be there
No more to see your smiling face
Nothing will ever take your place
In our hearts you will always stay
While we await that "One Sweet Day"
That "One Sweet Day" in Heaven above
Where we will meet and affirm our love
Once more our arms will hold you tight
As in God's presence we'll reunite
Until that day we must live our lives
Ensuring each memory of you survives
And feel your presence ever near
Each time we shed a painful tear
"See you in Heaven" you hear us say
As you watch over us every day
Then when our lives on earth are done
We know you'll be the one to come
You'll take us gently by the hand
And lead us to God's Heavenly land
Where all together we will be
Our once more happy family
With Our Eternal Love
Mom and Dad
