Remembering Rachel

To The Child in My Heart

Oh 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 of 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 longed 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 that we had.

But now you’re gone…

But yet you’re here.

We 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 we’ll have forever.

~C.P.
