I am setting up a memorial rose at our local park for a mom in our baby group, she lost her baby at 11 months. I would like a short quote...very short (5 words) to put under the babies name....prefer non religious quotes...anyone?

I'm so sorry for your friend's loss. I looked around at some quotes, and didn't find anything short enough, and appropriate.

Though maybe this would be appropriate?

"Death is the starlit strip between the companionship of yesterday and the reunion of tomorrow."
- on monument erected to Mark Twain & Ossip Gabrilowitsch

He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.  ~Albert Einstein

i carry your heart with me


i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

ee cummings


I would like a line from the above poem, or just the title.
