Letter To My Baby

So loved you came into my life
And I hoped you would stay
To hear all the important things
That I’ll never get to say
That you were mommy’s precious gift
And I loved you like no other
And I dreamt about the day
I could give you a sister or a brother
That while you were in my belly
I sang to you your own lullaby
And that I still haven’t found the voice
To tell you goodbye
That I wanted so badly
To hold you to my chest
And tell you God gave me you
Because I would love you the best
That sometimes I think about
What you would look like today
If fate had decided
That you would be born that day
That I wanted so badly to know
Your sweet baby smell
And I wanted to count each perfect
Little baby fingernail
I wanted to teach you to ride a bike
And how to bake a pie
How to love with all your heart
And to never cheat or lie
I wanted to read you a fairytale
Every single night
And tell you that God is the magic
That makes our souls take flight
I wanted to show you so many things
That a little kid should know
But now I’ll never even have the chance
To say I love you and hello
That even though you’re gone
You still mean the world to me
And that forever you’ll remain
My precious little baby.

    Oh, how very very sad. I am so sorry. I can't think of anything worse than to lose your baby.
