A poem for Emma

Barring a miracle, Emma will be leaving Emmanuel and me for a new home on June 18th.


god came to me in the form of a child
in a most unexpected way and time

she cooed and she cried
her smile brightened my life

i was affected in ways i never imagined
and my life has been changed forever

then just like that
in a flash she is gone

and a hole is left in my heart
empty and void

she will probably never remember me
having been moved to a new home so young

but i will never forget her face
or the love she brought to my life
