Dear Little Howie

Your Dad is your angel
gone to Heaven above.
His wings now surround you
with protection and love.

He watches and smiles
with fatherly joy
At the antics and laughter
of his precious boy.

And though here on Earth
you will never know him
There's a bond between you
that cannot be broken.

Then someday, God tells us,
we'll all be together
Where love is eternal
and we'll all live forever.

So be glad, Little Howie,
live life without fear.
Your Dad is your angel
and he'll always be near.

July 7th my son lost his father and he is almost 3. He did not know his father that well but I wanted to create a scrapbook with pictures and lovely poems and stickers but I can't find any stickers or scrap booking stuff that is for a loved one that has passed. Not a day goes by that I don't think of my sons dad. Not a day goes by that I don't think about the things I could have done to keep him alive.

My story is a lil different but your poem still pertains to what I have to say. My daughter died from HELLP Syndrome 47 days after she had her baby girl. I tell my granddaughter all the time her mommy is an angel & she is always looking down on her & that she's always gonna be proud of her no matter what.
