Another long sorrowful year has passed

And I have often paused…


To remember you.


I think back to my first glimpse of you…

Oh how tiny and fragile you looked!


You were a sweet little blossom of hope…


Your future was not yet fulfilled,

And yet you were everything to me.


Every year on this disheartening and mournful day,

I am reminded of you.


Grieved beyond words…


Nobody else seems to remember the way I do,

But a mother can never forget the loss of her child.


You were a perfect blessing and gift from above,

And yet you faded away… before I could even hold you.


My heart aches to be reunited with you.

What a joyous day that will be…


When I can finally nestle you in my arms

And kiss your sweet angelic face.
