I never got to see your face
or hold you in a warm embrace.
I never got to count your toes
or dress you in ribbons and bows.
I never got to call you by name
you were gone as fast as you came.
I never heard "mommy leave on the light"
or tuck you into bed at night.
I will never get to see you grow & grow
In heaven we will meet eachother and get to know
Id love to have smelled the odors of youth
or be there when you lost your first tooth.
Now i wish i could turn back time
cause then you'd be forever mine
The one thing I have is the memory of the day
the doctor had something to say.
he said listen to this, its her heart pounding away
Lord ill never forget that day.
But i now i guess it is time for goodbyes
knowing we will be together again, keeps the tears from my eyes.
Goodbye my child, your in good hands
and ill see you in the holy land
