Where do the babies go
when the mummies & daddies don't keep them?
Cut free to float up to the clouds
like untethered balloons of helium.
I wish that I could find you
and tell you you're so loved
I wish you were down here with me
not somewhere up above.

But even if I could find you
I don't know what else I'd say.
I don't know why we felt so pulled
to set you free that day.
I have the love, the means the strength
to have given you all you need.
Yet we still uprooted you from the soil
when you were just a seed.

Precious little flower,
I hope you've found a place to grow,
and if you hear me crying for you
I hope that you will know
there is nothing you did wrong,
you're perfect as you are
but it wasn't your time to come to Earth
so please dance among the stars.
