To The Child In My Heart
Precious, tiny sweet little one
You will always be to me
So perfect, pure and innocent
Just as you were meant to be
We dreamed of you and your life
And all that it would be
We waited and longed for you to come
And join our family.
We never had a chance to play,
To laugh, to rock, to wiggle.
We long to hold you, touch you now
And listen to you giggle.
I'll always be your mother.
He'll always be your dad.
You will always be our child,
the child we wish we had.
But now you are gone... but yet you're here
We will sense you everywhere.
You are our sorrow and our joy,
There's love in every tear.
Just know our love goes deep and strong
We'll forget you never
The child we had, but never had,
And yet will have forever.

My intro to PILAM 2010 is October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month and includes resources in the Las Vegas area.
