           Do Babies Grow Up in Heaven?            By Unknown
This poem is heartbreaking and very thought provoking.


Do Babies Grow Up in Heaven?
Will I know my baby when we meet again?
Will he have grown up, not be the infant that died in my arms? 
Will I recognize him, be able to find him among so many others? 
Or will he be a stranger to me, not knowing who I am,
or me knowing him? 

Do babies grow up in heaven? 
He never got his first tooth, or said his first words.
No first shoes, no Santa, no first birthday cake.
Will my son still be a baby when we meet again? 
Do babies grow up in heaven? 
Who sings him precious lullabies? 
Who holds him close and kisses him everyday? 
Who tells him constantly that they love him? 

Do babies grow up in heaven? 
When we next meet, will he know me? 
Will he want to know me? 
Will he be my son who died at three months, 
or a man, fully grown? 
Will I have the joy of being a mother to my son for all eternity? 

Do babies grow up in heaven? 
Will I be able to hold him, love him, sing lullabies to him? 
Will I be able to hold his tiny hand, or will it be a man's hand? 
Will I ever have the joy that only holding my son can bring? 
I need to know! In heaven, is my baby still a baby? 

Do babies grow up in heaven?


Birthdays are a time for celebration 
Not a time for tears 
But what happens when the birthdays 
No longer mark the years 
A birthday marks the moment 
A spirit enters earthly life 
To share its special love and joy 
And learn from earthly strife 
Before a spirit comes to us, 
It knows when and how it must depart 
It chose its path carefully, 
We are honored from the start 
The sadness we now feel on such a joyus day 
Is longing for our loved one's touch 
It's natural to feel this way 
For even though the birthdays 
No longer mark a spirit's stay 
Love continues on forever 
To touch us everyday I hug my precious memories 
Close to my heart 
And honor my beloved spirit child 
Who chose me from the start

"Tears in Heaven" is a ballad written by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings about the pain Clapton felt following the death of his four-year-old son, Conor, who fell from a window of the 53rd-floor New York apartment of his mother's friend, on March 20, 1991. Clapton, who arrived at the apartment shortly after the accident, was visibly distraught for months afterwards. This song is one of Clapton's most successful, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the U.S. The song also spent three weeks at #1 on the American adult contemporary chart in 1992.
