To My Angel Child
Nobody knows how broken a heart can be-
only a mother, a mother like me.
Time has never healed the pain of my baby lost;
God only knows, it was my life's greatest cost.
There is no grave to go to or place to shed my tears,
only alone on my pillow, away from judgment and fear.
They say God has His reasons; I don't know what they are.
All I know is sometimes Heaven is way too far.
I go on for your brother; I know he needs me in this life most.
I picture what it would be like with you by his side to boast!
Instead your are an angel resting on his shoulder.
Please, my angel child, love and protect him as he grows older.
I know our lives on Earth are not as good as if you were here.
I'd give anything if I could have had you with us all these years.
Though nobody knows or may feel my pain,
you know your tiny life inside me was never in vain.
I love you, my child,
my angel in Heaven;
you live in my heart
till I hold you again forever and ever.

I never considered myself a poet. I simply wrote this from my heart for my beautiful child, and to honor a bond of love that can never be broken.
