You…

shadow-child

 

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.
