Gone Too Soon

We heard you were coming
It gladdened our hearts,
Then all to soon, you were gone.
There's an empty space where we thought you'd be.

Today I picked up a book of knitting patterns
And I realized,
That I hadn't even had time to pick one out,
Say nothing about begin knitting one for you.

You left too soon to even say hello.
And we don't really understand why.
All we know is that you were here,
And now you're gone.

We trust you to the merciful care of God,
But we will miss getting to know you.
And your grandma will miss picking out something to make
Just for you.
