In Memory of My Baby Daughter

I never got to hear you laugh
you never saw me cry
didnt get a chance to say "Hello"
you never said "Goodbye"
I didn't think that I could feel
so sad, lost and forlorn.
I never knew God chose his Angels
before some of them were born.
Your life was short yet special
I shared it all exclusively
I felt you breathe, I felt you kick.
You were alive inside of me.
Every baby is an Angel
and every angel is divine
God needed one in heaven
He came down and took mine
And although we are not together
we're not really apart
for you'll always occupy a space
deep within my heart.
Time has begun to ease my pain
It's only some days now I cry.
When I wish I could have said "Hello"
and heard you say "Goodbye"

  1. Oh my ... you lost a child. I just can't imagine.

    Your life has had many challenges and sorrows.

    The name Elaine was not a common selection in the 70's. My own name is Elaine as well, named after my mother whose name was Elaine. It isn't a name you hear very often. I would love to know how you decided on that name.

    1. Geeze I hate how that shows up in red now!!! But she was named after a good friend!


I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
