In loving memory of Nino Francis King:

You were a miracle
The blessing of our love
For the whole world to see
That over hate and hostile
Love will set us free

You were a miracle she said,
The doctor on the phone
This child should not have survived
The first month in your womb
I guess he just wanted to say "Hi", before he had to go
and thank you for those 9 months that he got to enjoy

You were a miracle to us
For 3 days of love and bliss
That we got to meet and hold you
So close against our chests.
