The Boy Who Painted Rainbows

To my gorgeous baby Robyn, 

it was so hard to lay you to rest today, to let you go and acknowledge the reality of our situation. At the same time it was healing to have you back with us too. Your photograph that the hospital took is so special, you look so peaceful and safe swaddled in the intricate knitted blanket. That is how our love is for you, knitted over time and so intricate. It will never break, it will only get stronger. I hope our love is wrapped around you and keeps you warm until we see you again. 

I know you will be busy painting rainbows for us now. I saw your beautiful rainbow at 5am today, all those beautiful colours painted with your tiny fingers and toes. When you came into our lives after we had waited for so long, you painted a rainbow in our hearts everyday and still do. We miss you more than we have the words to describe. I am so lost without you. I am so proud of you and love you very much. I can’t wait to come and paint a rainbow with you soon. Make sure you stay close by, I don’t want to go anywhere without you. Goodnight little mush pea and fly high, lots and lots of love & kisses, mummy xxxx
