[Work in Progress]
When did you go, my littlest one?
I didn’t know to say goodbye.
I thought that you were still with me,
I hadn’t even thought to cry.
We only had a little time
for me to love and hold you close.
Well, I will love you all my life
even though you had to go.
Daddy, hold my dear one near
until I can get back to you.
I know he must be so like one
I have down here with eyes of blue.
Or maybe she is opposite
with dark features striking the eye
a sparkling wit to charm us all
and a heart we can’t deny.
Even though we haven’t met
to see life face to face,
I know I’ll recognize you when
I have finished my race.
I’ll run to you and scoop you up,
my forever-little one,
and you’ll give me back the missing piece
of my broken mother-heart.
