Georgia Ruby

I would say I miss you

But I never got to meet you

I got to hold you

But I never got to see your smile,

I got to stare at your perfect beautiful face

But I never got the chance to see the sparkle in your eyes,

My heart broke that day

Never to heal again,

Now I live with an ache

Deep within my soul,

I wish I could have seen you

And had the pleasure to watch you grow

But I was denied that for reasons I don’t know

All it needed was a single breath

And it could have all been different.

But just know one thing my baby girl,

Daddy loves you so,

And that I can’t let the pain go

Because it’s the only thing I have left of you to hold.

Fauxcroft, this poem moved me, and would have won first place in my contest "Non romantic love" had you dated your poem at the bottom as requested...I sent you a soupmail to give you a heads up, but you never got back to me...that is a pity, because I loved your poem but unfortunately I had to disqualify your entry...do not give up, try again I do like your poetry. Emile.

Oh no! Well that will teach me to read more carefully. I really appreciate that you let me know my error and that you thought highly of the poem, which means a lot to me.
