Dear God, Please Take Care Of My Little Girl

Dear God, please take care of my little girl,
The one with big eyes, and soft brown curls.
She was special, as you should know,
I really didn't want to let her go.

She touched the hearts of everyone she knew.
Letting her go was so hard to do.
Her smile could brighten up the darkest room.
I wish you didn't have to take her so soon.

Could you sit and rock her and read her a story,
She's probably afraid, please tell her don't worry.
Tell her mommy loves her and wishes she could be here,
But it won't be for many more years.

She loves to sing all kinds of songs,
Please tell her that she did no wrong.
Would you comfort her and hold her in your arms tight,
And tell her she is missed every day and night.

Please tell her she is loved so very dear
I'll say it every day for her to hear
Her short life on earth is now completed
For lessons I'm sure you felt I needed

Tell her I promise to see her again someday
When that will be, I really can't say
I promise to make up for the time that's past
To hold her and comfort her, in my arms at last.

My daughter JoLeen had open-heart surgery when she was five and was released from hospital on her 6th birthday. She was my precious miracle, so beautiful and full of life! Only 3 months after seeing her cardiologist who stated she was fine, JoLeen suffered from an unexpected heart attack at the age of 11 years. I've been so upset at God for taking her from me, her family and friends, and at such a young age. This has been so hard for me! I believe that she wasn't ready and and I am having such a difficult time accepting this! Everyone says it will take time to heal but how does anyone expect a parent to get through such a traumatic experience and move on?? It's just not possible ! I'm grateful for the prayers but they won't bring back my daughter! March 30, 2016 is when she passed. After reading other similar stories like mine, I realize I am not alone. But will I ever be at peace??

I came across this poem and it made me think of my precious Victoria. Tori was so full of life that heaven just couldn't wait for her. Words can't express my love for my baby girl. I will pray for you that God gives us both the strength and peace we need to get by day to day.... I love you Tori and miss you dearly 13 years just wasn't enough time....Love Mommy
