Ever since Joey was a baby, I used to sing this song to our little guys when they were babies. Zach even sings it with me now when I rock him before naptime. When I held our precious little Tiny Tim in the hospital, I sang this to him, too.
Thank you all for your prayers and encouraging comments and emails…every one means so much. Someday I’ll be able to share all the ways the Lord provided and how he answered so many prayers, but for now, this song is for my precious little brother, my little Timmy the Angel.
Baby Mine, don’t you cry.
Baby Mine, dry your eyes.
Rest your head close to my heart,
Never to part,
Baby of mine.
Little one, when you play,
Don’t you mind what they say.
Let those eyes sparkle and shine,
Never a tear,
Baby of mine.
If they knew sweet little you,
They’d end up loving you too.
All those same people who scold you,
What they’d give just for the right to hold you…
From your head down to your toes,
You’re not much, goodness knows.
But you’re so precious to me,
Sweet as can be,
Baby of mine.
Dedicated to my precious little brother, Timothy Alexander Rovirosa.
Our Tiny Tim…our own little Timmy the Angel.
My head knows that you are in Heaven and that you are so happy.
My head would not ask you to come back.
But my heart wishes that you were here,
and my heart is having a hard time letting you go.
If I may be permitted to give this to your family now? Brook had written this last Sunday after finding out about your families loss. I intend to provide your family with a typed and signed copy of this that Brook wanted you to have. Please forgive the lack of seperation of lines due to this comment format. In Loving memory of Timothy Alexander Rovirosa/Even though your not on this earth/You were loved and still will be from the day of birth/Gods creation you happened for a reason/You’re now with God you will never leave him/Tears are shed prayers are said/Timothy you were led through heavens gate,to be with the angels/Today we share your love from up above/Life may have not been in your eyes,but your are in my song of cries/You are now a friend and soul mate of God/Because of you mine eyes have opened abroad/Life is a gift, not something that is deserved/In our hearts you are preserved/You’re my shining star I hope you know/I am so sorry you’re not with us but had to go/Love is so powerful our love is so true/It was your turn to go God was calling you/So I’ll only say farewell because in good-byes I don’t believe/For I know the time will come again,when you’ll be holding hands with me.2-7-11 To: Timothy Rovirosa and his Family By: Brook Lynn Sumonja
Ally, How blessed your siblings are to have such a sweet caring sister. I was deeply touched by this. How I praise our wonderful, all knowing, ever merciful heavenly Father for giving you that special moment with your little brother. One day you will see him again. I am praying for you and your family. With Love, Mrs. Dever Proverbs 3:5-6
I wanted to let you know that I’ve been thinking about and praying for your family. Having lost a sweet 2 month old brother last June, I understand some of the pain your family is going through.

P.S. I heard about your blog from Kate Boyd and have enjoyed reading it for several months.
