Our little Logan was born at 12:05pm on the 2nd of August 2005. He was sadly stillborn it just wasn't meant to be he tryed his hardest to be here with mummy and daddy. We love our little put put so much and miss him even more. Logan was a very active baby he liked to play with mummy's ribs by kicking them all the time or elbowing mum's hip. He became the most active when mum would have a bath and he would go crazy kicking and jumping around inside mum. But most of all he would get mum annoyed when he constantly got the hiccups that happened at least 4 or 5 times a day. On the monday afternoon mummy rang the midwife and said she hadn't felt you move all day the midwife said don't worry about it so mummy took her advice mum then started going into labour that afternoon we kept in contact with midwife who didn't seem to care what was going on and so we stayed at home getting all excited that we were going to meet you in the next few hours we managed to stay at home for what seemed like forever we got to the hospital at just before 8am on tuesday morning (your birthday) they tried to find your heartbeat and couldn't find it so the midwife and doctor called in the specialists that moment i will never forget you had passed away inside me you had some how managed to get a knot in your cord and wrapped it twice around your neck. We continued with labour and got adminstered all the drugs they never worked i felt all the pain you entered this world never to take a single breath you have touched so many lives and brought a large extended family so much closer together for that i am forever grateful. We love you our sweet little angel and always will till we meet again my beautiful little boy. Forever yours
Daddy and Mummy

If i could have a lifetime wish
A dream that would come true
I'd pray to god with all my heart
for yesterday and you
a thousand words can't bring you back
i know because i've tried
and niether will a million tears
i know because i've cried
you left behind my broken heart
and happy memories too
i never wanted memories
i only wanted you.
You never said I'm leaving
You never said Goodbye
You were gone before i knew it
And only god knew why
A million times i needed you
A million times i cried
If love alone could have saved you
You never would have died
In life i loved you dearly
In death i love you still
In my heart you hold a place
That no-one could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you
But you didn't go alone
For part of me went with you.
Once a heart is shattered
Can it ever mend
Once your spirit is broken
Can it be whole again
Each little peice is sacred
Each little part must fit
But when a peice is gone
There is no replacement for it
We learn to laugh and smile again
Feel guilty when we do
We learn to live our lives again
All the while missing you
I know you want to see us
Smiling and happy for you
Your in heaven Angel
But we wish we could see you too
My heart it feels so heavy
And yet i smile and laugh
Sometimes i want scream it
This smile is just a mask
If only it were tomorrow
You know that golden day
When once again i will hold you
and the pain will fade away
Till then my love i hold you
in my broken heart
I'm trying to learn to live again
Today is a brand new start.
There's no tragedy in life like the death of a child
Things never get back to the way they were.
