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.
