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 lost my little girl, Clara. She was born with CHD. She was two when she has a heart cath and went into cardiac arrest and was on ECMO for six days. On the third day she went into cardiac arrest again and had no brain activity. At this point her body was shutting down, so I held her as they took her off the machines. Never thought this would happen to me. This happened Oct 25 2015.

Never did I think God took her but, I was told by her father that God took her 'cause I wouldn't get back with him. No way did that happen. God does not do that! I'm so sorry that you lost your little one. I do understand your pain, and I will be praying for you. I know it hurts and you wonder will there ever be peace. I hope for us both there will be. I hope I didn't make you upset. I just want you to know I will be praying for your peace, peace with God. And in your own time please know God loves you and understands your hurt. Keep praying.

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
