The First Words I Have Managed to Say to My Daughter

I wake every morning feeling your absence in my world. I feel it in every breath I take, every beat of my heart. I know you are not alone in Heaven for a piece of me went with you the day you died.

Mine was the first face you saw the day you were born and the last voice you heard the day you left us. I loved you before I met you when you were still in your mommy’s tummy and will love and miss you every second of every minute, of every hour, of every day, until my time on earth is done.

God only shared you with us for a short time as He knew you were not meant for this harsh world. You are now God’s Angel in Heaven, but know you were my Angel on earth.


Please give Keisha a big hug from me and tell her that I will be okay!

Show her the treasures of the universe and share with her all the wonders You have made.

Take her to meet all those that I have loved and lost and who already live in Your house.

Tell them that this is Keisha, sister, granddaughter, cousin, friend and most especially – my baby girl.

Let them love her in Heaven as I loved her on earth.

Hold her close by Your side until we are together again.

Always and Always,
