A Letter To My Son

Dear Ibrahim,
        Though you never knew me, you were the most precious thing I had ever seen with my eyes or held in my hands.

Though you never took your first breath, you took my breath away when I held you in my arms for the first time. 

You are my first born and you will always be my most precious. I held you in my arms when you came into this world and I held you in my arms as I lay you to rest. 

I only ask that God whispers in your ear and lets you know just how much I love you.

I sometimes ask God why he took you from me but I know you were always created for Him and never for me. You were brought into this world only to be taken away because God just couldn't wait another minute to hold you in His arms and delight in you as I delighted in you when you were in my arms.

Though you never took a breath, you taught me more in your short life than the wisest wise man could have taught me in a lifetime.

Oh my son, The sacrifices I made to make sure you came into this world only to have God take you away from me would have been enough to crush any other man but you were my biggest trial and my proudest moment. Your very existence showed so much to me and even more to God.

The tears of joy I shed the first time I saw you are the same tears of joy I shed now as I tell you just how much I love you. I think about you all the time and wish you were here with me now. You should be taking your first steps right about now and I can see you take those steps in my mind.

As tiny as you were you had the ability to change a grown man. I was ready to take care of you and keep you safe from all harm. I was prepared to sacrifice everything to make sure you had all that you needed.

Even now I shed tears of joy knowing that we will one day be reunited and I will once again hold you in my arms. For in that day that our God tells me, "well done my good and faithful servant", He will welcome me into His kingdom and there God will hand you to me and I will once again hold you in my arms and I will shed those same tears of joy as I did the first time I saw you and then we will be together forever.


       
With all the love I have for you my son,
Daddy

awwww so precious. i'm sure even getting this comment from me forces you to relive the memory. it is interesting that abraham is the one who God called to take his son's life as a symbol of what it would feel like for God to take Jesus' life. i wish you all the best, and praise the fact that you are a MAN.

Thank you for taking the time to read it. Yes, we named him after his mothers father and I liked the name because it is a strong name, like Abraham was strong in obeying God, even if it meant taking his own sons life. Thank you for the best wishes and God bless you and your family as well.

This was amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your heart. You are an amazing man.

Thank you my friend for taking the time to read it. I don't think I'm that amazing, but I do know that the trials in life are what build our character. God bless.

may GOD rest your son Ibrahim soul ....

Thank you my friend and thank you for taking the time to read my letter.

UW ... you are strong man . i am happy that you are my friend.

I'm so sorry. I am truly touched by your heartfelt words.

Thank you for reading it.

Wow ... I came to visit your profile because of your comment on "The Warriors" and I found this post. I can't imagine how it must feel to loose a child. Your heart felt letter to your child really touched my heart ... you have my sympathy and my admiration.

Thank you, I have just come from your profile having read about Julie. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter. It's always difficult to lose a loved one, and the babies it hurts a little more, but knowing he's in a better place waiting for me helps to comfort me.

thank you for sharing..god bless

Thanks for taking the time to read it, and God bless to you too.

Beautifully shared, I lost two precious babies in miscarriage. Isn't our God wonderful to promise that we will know them when we get to Heaven! We will see them and we will know them! God is good!

Yes He is. "God is good-All the time."

painfuly touching to read. Dont know what else to say

Thank you, you've said more than enough.

Like his name. Hope I am pronouncing it correctly

Yes, Ee-Brah-Heem. It's Arabic for Abraham. His mother is an Arab.

I would like to say more than just rating this up, but I can't right now. That's how deeply you have touched me tonight.

Thank you for taking the time to read it.

Thank you for sharing this. I started crying in the 4th paragraph, and cried all the way through. Beautifully written, though I am very sorry for the loss of your son.

Thank you. I cried all the way through myself. Thank you for the compliment and I will see my son again.

I know you cried, also...your tears came out in your writing. And I know he is waiting on you.

Heartrending & Beautiful ❤

Your experience brings me many emotions. Sadness for your loss, joy for your strength, and serenity for your faith. You have very powerful words. Please continue sharing your experiences. It makes a difference. Thank you for all your wisdom.

God needed a very special angel....

Yes He did, and now he is in the arms of God. :D

Thank you, and God bless you and your family.

I am so so sorry.. :(

Thank you frootie. I still miss him and wish he were here, but God has another plan.

That was beautifully expressed. It brought tears to my eyes. I'm so sorry for the lose of your sweet little boy. What helps me with the lose of my son is to remember that he isn't really dead, but is very much alive and having a blast in Heaven. Your precious son has moved to Heaven ahead of you and is waiting there for you, just like my late son.

Yes they are.... they are waiting for us in Heaven. Thank you.
