Nothing Gold Can Stay
Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
By Robert Frost
Skylar loved the movie “The Outsiders” and this was her favorite poem. My “old soul” child. She sure makes me smile.
The more I read it, the deeper the meaning I find and wow, how appropriate this poem is! All things wonderful must go, and can not stay….my baby was certainly gold to me, why wouldn’t God want this wonderful child in his presence?
This was the verse that God gave to me tonight when I asked for His comfort.
“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
Thank you God for the PROMISE that my baby is in your loving presence and that someday I too will be joined with her again. Thank you for your GRACE! Although this does not ease my pain and sadness, it does bring me comfort deep inside my soul.
Loving you and missing you Sky-bird. Today,tomorrow and always. I love you more.
