Tribute to My Child

Tribute to my child
It has been several weeks since you left, yet still I wonder if I had truly done my best. Your love gave me every hope our days would continue on, then I came home only to find you had gone. I wanted to help you, to bring you back, to slowly wake you from your nap. Your crumpled body through glassy eyes I did slowly rearrange, as I wanted not to cause you any more pain. I gazed at you and stroked you too trying to sooth whatever you had gone through. I noticed my tears falling to the floor, first one then many more. Why did I leave and not go away, I wish to have noticed you needed me to stay. I miss your greeting at the front door, your love and excitement I had hoped to experience many more. You left a mark on my heart and even a void that tears it apart. Baby I will miss you till my time has come, then hope to find you in the heavens high above. I will search the universe all over and for eternity hope to find, this little girl who brought me so much love yet had to leave me behind.
