Baby Death Poem

This is third poem I am submitting about my beautiful daughter, Lexi, who passed away last year. I have never really written poems before she died, and I find it a way to express how I feel about my ongoing pain.

An Angel's Dad!

I can't begin to express the pain that I am in.
I lost a part of me, and that hurts me deep within.
You said goodbye before we ever got the chance to really say hello.
You were gone in a flash, leaving tears mixed with love and sorrow.
I don't know if you chose your path or it was chosen for you,
but I'm glad I was on your journey before you got your wings and flew.
You're my angel now watching over us from above,
My inspiration for life and my teacher of the meaning of love.
In 19 days, you taught me more than I even thought I could know.
How could something so small have so much courage to show?
You taught me that I need to stay strong and never give up,
that it doesn't matter if it is half empty or full, just enjoy the cup.
It's funny how someone that was only here for such a little while
can be remembered with every heartbeat, tear, and smile.
The pain I have in my chest does not make me feel sad;
it's just the battle wound I have for being an Angel's Dad!
