A Letter to my Angel
Dear baby girl,
Whose eyes would never see,
Though you never cried aloud,
You are a part of me.
The moment that I first held you,
Would also be my last,
But I kissed your forehead just the same,
As minutes flew by too fast.
I keep your picture on my shelf,
I kept prints of your hands and feet,
I kept the cards and memories,
I kept your hospital blanket and sheet.
I was supposed to kiss you goodnight,
Not kiss you goodbye.
I was supposed to cry in joy,
Not cry after feeling you die.
I was supposed to do so much with you,
Like birthdays, vacations, and more,
I was supposed to watch you grow so big,
Not hold your urn while lying on the floor.
Dear baby girl, I hope that you know,
You were loved all your short life long,
I think of you when I wake, sleep, and breathe,
And for you, I’ll try to stay strong.
Dear baby girl, dancing in heaven,
Give hugs to the little angels with you,
Each one has a hurting mommy on earth,
Who is missing her little angel too.
