To Our Child in Heaven

Big Brother Lincoln
I never met you, but I miss you.

It’s been 2 months and the pain is still overwhelming. Nothing prepared me to hear the words, “There is no baby”. It hit me harder than I thought it would.

I have your pictures up in my office. We picked out your name. We bought the coolest “Big Brother” shirt for Lincoln and he wore it proudly for Pops, Dia, Pappy, and CiCi.

We weren’t ready to say goodbye.

I will always wonder who you would have been.

You and Lincoln are my greatest accomplishments in life. I am so lucky to be your dad. I will never take for granted the happiness that you brought into our lives and I look forward to the day that I can hold you in my arms.

Miss you forever,


P.S. — Your baby brother Rowan is due in June.

Not a day goes by
That I don’t think of you
I’m always asking why
This crazy world had to lose
Such a ray of light
We never knew
Gone too soon
