Poem of thanks

Guest blogger - Krystle L

This is a poem I wrote for all the amazing staff that helped our baby girl Summa Rose when she was born 23 +5 weeks in December 2011 in KEMH. She is now a beautiful healthy, perfectly normal loving little toddler xx

Sixteen weeks of joy,
Sixteen weeks of tears, 
Sixteen weeks together, 
Memories we will remember for many years,

Our princess summa rose, 
Was a fighter from the start,
Sixteen weeks to early ,
But that couldn't keep us apart,

Mummy knew that she was strong,
And never left her side,
Daddy held her tiny hands,
And prayed to god up high,

Prayed to keep her safe from harm,
And bless her night and day,
Prayed for strength and courage,
And all our fears to take away,

I could have searched high and low,
And never could have found,
A better daddy for my girl,
To keep her safe and sound,

And to my princess summa,
I love you with all my heart,
You are a blessing from Jehovah,
So much strength from the start,

So many tiny hands and feet,
Come rushing through your doors,
Each one precious and unique,
And battling with their own wars,

We thank you all from the bottom of our heart,
For all your help and knowledge,
Watching you work together as a team,
Has truly been a privilege,

You picked us up and made us strong,
When days were dark and grey,
And reminded us that soon to come,
Were sunny and brighter days,

Days of laughter, cuddles and kisses,
Days of just pure fun,
Days at home with mum and dad,
With the patter of tiny feet too run,

Now it's time to say goodbye,
This long journey has come to it's end,
You are no longer doctors or nurses or staff,
We're blessed to call you our friends!!


Nothing can ever repay the gratitude we feel to those who make a difference in our lives during a traumatic time, but a message of thanks goes a long way.  We would love you to join our community in sending a message of thanks to our WA hospitals, staff, family, friends, or whomever made a difference in your journey.  You can do so on our 'Messages of Thanks' page here.
