We called him Leon the Lionheart,
Its almost as if we had known,
That while he was inside Mummy s tummy,
His little heart had not grown.
December came and went in a blur,
And so it was 'till June,
That life raced on without us,
So round and round we went.
Our family and friends gathered around,
Giving strength and support,
when we were running out,
But if we lost our little heart it would all have been for nought.
Little Leon Lionheart battled on and in June got the gift of life,
Mr Watterson and his merry band,
hand crafted Leons heart,
With smiles and laughter now restored.
We wondered what came next...
Little Leon Lionheart rolling on the floor,
Little Leon Lionheart heading for the door!
Little Leon Lionheart getting stronger every day.
We say our thank yous all the time for our extraordinary little boy,
Who has brought such light and love into our hearts,
Our friends and family all rejoice,
For Little Leon Lionheart!
