For Gemma

I work up today in Erith 
As the rain was coming down 
My baby she was still sleeping 
I tried not to make a sound

I turned to her and whispered
“Babe I love you so”
“I love you more than ever “
“More than you could ever know”

And as the rain was falling 
You woke, looked at me and smiled
You told me that you loved me 
And you would never let me go 

So now its 12 weeks later 
And she’s still holding my hand 
Wiping my tears away 
And keeping me from harm 

So darling to you this I swear 
I will never do you harm 
And hold you close to my heart
To always keep you safe and sound 

I love you Gemma x
