Daughter Death Poem

Poem About Way Daughter Saw Mom

This poem is in honor of my daughter Alanna who passed away at age 1 in March of 2007! She was born 2 months early with very underdeveloped lungs. She was very sick and spent most of her life in the hospital. I spent a lot of the time wondering how she had the will to life and keep going. But then I realized that maybe it was the way that she saw me keeping on and caring for her. She was my world my life and this poem is the way that I believe she saw me to keep on living for as long as she did.

Alanna's Eyes

©

Published: January 2009

Through Alanna's eyes I am smart,
I am wise, I am comfort, I am love.
Through Alanna's eyes I am strong, I am independent, I am whole.
Through Alanna's eyes I walk tall, I pray, I fight.
Through Alanna's eyes I have the ability to embrace life
And what it throws my way.
Through Alanna's eyes I have the courage to stand alone.
I live, I love, I stand on my own.
I live today and keep with me the image she had.
To proceed and carry on through Alanna's eyes.

I too had a daughter that was born early with severe lung problems as well as a multitude of other issues. She spent all 5 weeks of her life in a hospital. We were able to bring her home for Christmas, but that was short lived. She was always developing some sort of complication. As little as she was, she was the strongest person I had ever seen and miss her every day. She died two days short of her 1st Birthday. It will be 7 years tomorrow that she died. My heart goes out to you and your family for the loss of your daughter. Know that she is now your guardian angel and will always watch over you. My prayers are with you.
