Daughter Death Poem

My beautiful daughter, Charlotte passed away due to medical complications on March 5, 2006. Each year on the anniversary I write a poem to her as a tribute to the wonderful time we spent with her.

Could I have another moment
Another kiss, another smile
One more chance to watch you sleep
Or just to sit awhile

Ours to keep, or so we thought
We found we were mistaken
Like most of those who've lost a child
We felt we were forsaken

When I watched your life play through my mind
I can't believe I failed to see
The silhouette of angel wings
There to set you free

I no longer feel so angry
You were heaven's all along you see
Our time will come to be with you
To share eternity
