For the Evans, and all parents whose faith has been challenged in the ultimate way...


Jesus, tuck my baby in tonight.
Let him know his Mommy misses him,
but she will be alright.
Although my arms are empty
I know that you will hold him tight;
Oh, Jesus, tuck my baby in tonight.

Jesus, sing my child sweet lullabies.
Oh, I know that up in Heaven
Heíll have no Pcause to cry.
But if it brings him pleasure,
Itís how I shared your Light,
So, Jesus, sing my child sweet lullabies

Jesus, send you comfort down to me.
Know I wonít forget the things
You did to set me free.
You are my Lord, my Savior,
and now, my Prince of Peace;
Please, Jesus, send you comfort down to me

He was mine for a moment, and then was gone,
But in my heart and in heaven heíll live on and on...

So, Jesus, tuck my baby in tonight.
Let him know his Mommy misses him,
but she will be alright.
Although my arms are empty
I know that you will hold him tight.
Oh, Jesus, tuck my baby in tonight.

Such a touching poem. What grief some parents have to bear. You have conveyed your thoughts and feelings in a very poignant way and the reader can empathize with them.

Sweet poem of a mother's love; however a few "R"s left off of YouR, - but overall very touching.

Such a heartwrenching tribute beautifully shared. I could feel the grief so vividly. Wonderful job.

Sounds like a song. I could almost hear it.
