My Sweet Angel Baby

Ten little fingers
And ten little toes
A sweet little smile
And cute button nose

Giggles and coos
And sad little cries
A loving stare
Yawns and soft sighs

My love for you
Started out strong
And will continue on
For forever long

It makes me sad
To not get the chance
To see your sweet face
Or to watch you dance

I know you're playing
On top of the moon
You watch from above,
An angel too soon

I wanted to hold you
And raise you up
Watch you go from a bottle
To a big sippy cup

I wanted to rock you
Until you slept
And kiss away all
The tears that you wept

I longed to stare
Into your big bright eyes
And hold you at night
While we stared at the skies

But God took you to Heaven
Before we could meet
Before I could feel
The kick from your feet

I did not know you
As a boy or a girl
But a sweet little baby
Who made my heart swirl

I'll always wonder
If you had my smile
Or daddy's eyes
And cool sense of style

While you were growing
Would you like sports?
Would you be big and strong?
Would you be tall or short?

So many questions
I'll never have answered
Soccer player? Swimmer?
Cheerleader? Dancer?

The thought of you
Always being with me
Still lingers in my heart...
Just a little differently

Our time together
I feel was too short
And the pain that I bear
Is too strong to sort

But now you are safe
In God's loving arms
Where I trust he will keep you
Away from all harm

I wanted the chance
To raise you myself
To bandage your boo-boo's
And doctor your health

But since I cannot
Watch my precious one grow
I want you to remember
And to always know

That I'll never forget you
Not even maybe,
I'll meet you in Heaven
My sweet angel baby <3
