Poetry by Daniel Kerr
My wife and I had our beautiful baby girl Lexi on 2ND September 2011, we were told something was wrong with her but no one was sure exactly what. That night we were told that she would be dead within 15 minutes. Lexi had other plans and fought hard for 19 days. My wife and I wanted to share her strength with the world and we often updated our friends and wider community through facebook, this helped us to cope better with Lexi's illness and has helped us feel supported in her death.
I have never really been able to express my feelings very well. In fact I am usually as closed off to the world about my feelings as a giant rock. However, since my daughter died I cant stop writing these poems and I want to share with the world the love I have for my beautiful baby girl.
This is third poem I am submitting about my beautiful daughter Lexi who passed away last year. I have never really written poems before she died and I find it away to express how I feel about my on going pain.
