A Beautiful Poem

Half of an Angel's Heart

It's a beautiful day up in heaven. Jesus is rounding up his tiniest angels, to go live on earth, and be born. One of the sweetest angels says to Jesus "I don't want to leave, I like it here, and I will miss you". He reassures the scared little angel that everything will be okay, and that she is just going for a visit. She is still not swayed on this idea. So Jesus kneels down, and says, "How about if you leave half of your heart here with me and take the other half with you, will that be okay?" The angel smiles and says, "I guess that will work". But the little angel is still a little scared. She asks, "Will I be okay with only half of my heart?" Jesus replies, "Of course you will, I have other angels there that will help out, and you will be fine." Then Jesus gives the angel more details about his plan. He says "When you are born, your mommy will be scared, so you have to be strong, and when you feel weak just remember that I have the other half of your heart." "Enjoy your time with your family, play and laugh everyday." "And when its time to come back to heaven, I will make your heart whole again. Always remember that you are not broken, just torn between two loves." -Author Unknown


  1. Wow! That poem was good it made me cry. Where do you find poems like this at I looked and looked almost everywhere please please let me know thank you. :)

  2. Hi, My name is Melissa and I am a mother of a 10 mo HLHS son. I know your fears and doubts very well. It is a scary roller coaster ahead but these doctor's have miracle hands to repair these tiny hearts. Our son has undergone the 1st two surgeries (Norwood & Glenn) and is doing FANTASTIC now. Please focus on the positive and enjoy the moment. Please email me if your interested to chat. - Prayers are going to you and your family during this time.


  3. Thank you both. I found this poem on another parents blog. Reading other blogs gives me so much hope for our babies. Also, if you google Stephanie Husted, she writes so many amazing poems about HLHS babies. She is also on facebook. She has a son with HLHS. The poem I have on the side of this blog... "when I became a heart mother" was written by her.

    I have so much faith that Jacob will be ok. I still have my moments but I try to focus on all of the amazing kids I have seen who live with this everyday and thrive!

    Thank you so much for the prayers. !
