Remembering Robbie After 12 Years



A dozen years have come and gone
Since last I saw your smile,
Yet when I think of you, sweet Rob,
Seems just a little while.



Wasn't it just yesterday
You climbed up in our tree?
Wasn't it just hours ago
You slipped and skinned your knee?



Didn't I hear you run outside
To play with your best friend?
Who could have thought these precious times
Would ever have to end?



Yet end they did one frosty night
When we were fast asleep;
We didn't even know till morn
Your soul had made that leap.



At first the days dragged slowly by,
But soon it was a year,
And now it's been eleven more--
Oh, how we miss you, dear!



Surrounded by your pictures,
I always feel you near;
But always I am wishing
That you could just appear.



And smile that brilliant smile for me
And hug me close and tight,
For I never got to say goodbye
Before you left that night.



God has you in His loving care,
And we will meet again,
But it could still be long years ahead,
I wish I knew just when!



And yet I trust God's plans for us,
His plans are always best;
And though I wait a dozen more,
I know that I am blessed;



For God sent you to be our son,
And that's forever true,
Even if we wait long years,
Some day I'll be with you!



For Robbie with love from Mom,
Saralyn McAfee Smith
