Little Memories
Author: Scott Hatch Jr


As we all gather around
it's time to shed all the tears
we grieve inside, and let our emotions out
as we remember Little Bill, and for those
who didn't get to meet the little fella.
There were always good days
as we watched over him
playing, crying, and listening to all that screaming
watching him swing his little feet and hands
high in the air as far as they would go
like a little wild child
but it was never from getting hurt
because his life was cut way to short
to where he never got the chance to run,
and play to fall down, and get his own bumps and bruises
or to even have his first steps
running through the house
getting into any, and everything he could find
but having him there when he was
made us all happy
he was just always so cute
wiggling his little fingers and toes.
I remember when his aunt Lisa saw him
for the first time
once she picked him up and held him
you'd think she was never going to let go
but I guess thats the way
it was with everyone who got the chance to hold him
but for those who didn't really missed their chance
to hold such a wonderful little baby
with a little mind ready to learn and grow up
but now where he is, he wont have to worry about
growing old, and still always be healthy
well Little Bill, sorry your time
was cut way to short
and you never really got to be a kid
to stir up your own trouble
well kiddo everyone misses you
and will always be thinking of you
With love from your brother

Hey Scott

It tears me up to read about a baby's death. He only got to live four months. It's very heartbreaking. You would think every baby would grow up to be adults and get married and have kids of their own someday. But I've realized, especially this year, every moment spent with a newborn counts, because we never know when the unexpected my happen.

But I'd just like to say Scott, from the way you wrote your poem about him, it sounds like you would've been a wonderful brother to him.

This was a real sweet tribute to dedicate in honor of him Scott.

~Losing a family member is hard believe us~

Hi, this is jessica and katie, we are very sorry to hear about your loss, it isnt always the best thing to lose a innocent little child, maybe god just wanted him back up there with him, who knows, but all i can say is that we wish we could help but there isnt much we can do. but be there for you. thanks.....Jessica and Katie

I couldn't even IMAGINE!

I don't know you.. Just talked with you.. but you would have made a great big brother from what I know. I couldn't believe how good the poem was, but it really shows that you cared a lot to take the time to write this about someone you truly cared about! I'm sorry for your loss.
