Too Beautiful for Earth

Keira Jean Wilkins was stillborn February 28, 2013 at 12:52pm weighing 5 pounds, 9 ounces.  Keira's fetal death was ruled a "cord accident" as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck twice, body twice, and her right leg once. 

She is deeply loved and missed by all of her family and, especially, her parents Erik & Heather Wilkins. 

We love you to the moon and back beautiful baby girl!

An Angel Never Dies

Don't let them say I wasn't born,

That something stopped my heart

I felt each tender squeeze you gave,

I've loved you from the start.

Although my body you can't hold

It doesn't mean I'm gone

This world was worthy, not of me

God chose that I move on.

I know the pain that drowns your soul,

What you are forced to face

You have my word, I'll fill your arms,

Someday we will embrace. 

You'll hear that it was meant to be,

God doesn't make mistakes

But that won't soften your worst blow,

Or make your heart not ache.

I'm watching over all you do,

Another child you'll bear

Believe me when I say to you,

That I am always there.

There will come a time, I promise you,

When you will hold my hand,

Stroke my face and kiss my lips

And then you'll understand.

Although I've never breathed your air,

Or gazed into your eyes

That doesn't mean I never was,

An Angel never dies.
