Isabella Marie Hlynosky

January 9, 2002 – May 17, 2003

My beautiful Isabella was born a happy healthy little princess. She had everthing that one little baby could want. I’m not sure why, but she was taken from me one day during a nap. Since she was over the age of one it was ruled as SUDC. I think of Bella every day and miss her more than anything.

If I Could Take

If I could take a minute out of each and everyday,
To hold my child close to my heart and kiss her fears away.
If I could take a minute out of each and every week,
To play with blocks and peek-a-boo, tag or hide and seek.

If I could take a minute of any span of time,
I’d never waste a second of the pleasures that were mine.
If she could crawl upon my knee and lay her sleepy head,
Upon my shoulder tenderly and dream of gingerbread.

I’d spend my time in total bliss and watch my small daughter grow,
From babyhood to childhood, knowing all there is to know.
If I could stop my aching heart and put my mind asleep,
If I could stop the flow of tears that are always on my cheek.

I only need a minute, Lord, I know she’s safe with you,
But there’s something real important that I had no time to do.
If you could do it for me Lord, here’s a message she should know,
Tell her that I love her, then I’ll let her go.

This morning when I woke up,
I was in a different place.
I looked for you everywhere,
but I could not see your face.

I came across a girl like me,
Her hand I held in mine.
She took me to a beautiful place,
filled with love and things divine.

Mommy and Daddy I’m in heaven now.
I have no heartache here.
All we do is play and laugh,
I’ll never shed a tear.

You can’t skin your knee on clouds,
and you can’t get burned by the sun.
I’ll never have a broken heart,
or be able to get hurt by someone.

There is no one here that judges,
or makes fun of me.
I’ve never known that anyway,
for I’m a baby.

I found that I can see you now.
I watch you every day.
I’m in every dream you have,
I’m in every prayer you pray.

I’m in every hope you have,
I’m in every wish you make.
I’m in every child who’s born,
I’m in all the love you take.

Mommy and Daddy I love you so much,
and my baby brother too.
I’ll be with you again someday,
’til then know I’m always with you.

We are connected my child and I,
by an invisible cord not seen by the eye.

It’s not like the cord that connects us ’til birth.
This cord can’t be seen by any on Earth.

This cord does it’s work right from the start.
It binds us together attached to my heart.

I know that it’s there though no one can see the invisible cord from my child to me.

The strength of this cord, it’s hard to describe.
It can’t be destroyed. It can’t be denied.

It’s stronger than any cord man could create.
It withstands the test, can hold any weight.

And though you are gone, though you’re not here with me, the cord is still there, but no one can see.

It pulls at my heart.
I am bruised…I am sore,
but this cord is my lifeline as never before.

I am thankful that God connects us this way.
A mother and a child,
Death can’t take it away!
