I Never Had The Chance

I never had the chance To hear you talk Our time ran out Before you could walk. You were born with wings A sign we knew That the man upstairs Would soon come for you. They laid you in my arms And I quietly mourned For my dark haired angel That I had born. I never had the chance To see your eyes He took you away With no time for good byes. I think of you often And wonder why I never had the chance To hear your first cry. You were a special little girl An enchanting rose The moment I held you Our time suddenly froze. I never had the chance To watch you grow Or hear your laugh As we played in the snow. I never had the chance To give you a mother’s love But I know you’re always there Watching over me from above.

Heart wrenching write, I can't say I feel your pain in that way, however I know what its like to have a sick child and he DID die on the operating room table, he had 3 heart surgeries before he was 5 months old and it was touch and go, every day my heart was ripped out of my chest, so that I know. Well deserved feature of the week, God Bless and stay strong, read my poem "Gratitude" if you would like, Love and Peace, and Prayers.....Aleera

Wow being one who writes from the heart myself I can imagine the awful pain penning this poem must have created - I cried at its beauty and the strength it took to write it is simply amazing - I thank you for your comments but truly feel you should stand before the mirror to make them for your talent is amazing itself - God Bless
