SO MANY PLANS

Karen Downen, Grandmother to Samantha Grace

I HAD SO MANY PLANS FOR YOU
Your cherished teddies room in pink and blue
Your tiny little clothes all folded or hung
I was ready for lullabies to be sung
I love your mommy and did all I could
awaiting your arrival, our life was so good
I HAD SO MANY PLANS FOR YOU
To watch you grow and guide your views
To"spoil you rotten" as grandmas do
I was so ready and grandpa was too
But God had special plans for you
As you entered this world, only then we knew
We held you and kissed you for such a short time
As Angels came forward, I thought it a crime
God called you to heaven, to
be with him there
And I'd never hold you in that rocking chair
God holds your precious innocence in his warm embrace
But Oh-Samantha Grace
I HAD SO MANY PLANS FOR YOU
You'll never be forgotten, you'll always be loved
And one day I'll see you and hold
you in heaven above
Love,

Grandma
