Mom and Daddy were young
And baby Gene was due any day
He was born but the doctor’s told he may not make it and to pray
Then Jesus took him home at four days old at the rising of the sun.
As their hearts were breaking that day
Jesus took their baby boy and held him in His arms
He was at peace and free from sickness and alarm
Jesus put his arms around mom and daddy even if it didn’t feel that way
Baby Gene is an angel up in Heaven above
God healed mom and daddy’s heart long ago
They shared love with my sister and I more than they will ever know
While our guardian angel protect us with the strength of an eagle from above.
Mom and daddy gave all they could
When they could have closed their hearts
They shared their love, grace and courage and gave us a good start
To work, play and be a good neighbor and this was understood.
So every year on the anniversary of your passing
Mom and daddy reminisce of your short life on that day
When they think of being with the angels and pray
So here on earth your family serves Jesus and pursues an eternal love everlasting.
