My Niece, My Love


Published by Family Friend Poems January 2009 with permission of the Author.

My niece, My love,
The one I adore,
A aunt at eleven,
I love her so much more,
Someone to play with,
Someone to cheer up,
I watch over her through good times and rough,
She makes me happy,
She makes me smile,
She makes me want to stay with her for a while.
I know I cant stay I must go home,
Its so hard, to let her go,
Even though its for a short time,
I count the days till' I see her again,
My niece, My love
The one I adore!

I can never imagine life without my niece. She's just 2 years old, but I've watched her grow and taught her a few things in life. I just love her so much.

On April 28, 2011 the day she was born my niece.....and I cant forget that!! She's my niece although feels like my own. :) I love her with all my heart....she's 1 year 5 months. She's the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.....When I first seen her in the hospital I felt the connection between us. She's the most happy baby even though she gets cranky! She is full blooded Mexican although she came out with dirty blonde hair and blue eyes. (My sis (her mom) has green eyes)! She's spoiled by everyone and I love her with all my heart and I love to watch her grow! I cherish the moments I spend with her! Every time she see's me she runs and hugs me and never wants to let go and when I leave home I can hear her crying for me so I gotta come back and I take her to my house...I do everything for her. I feed her bathe her and everything love you babygirrl Ariana Marie <3 :D

My niece Jaedyn was smiling so much but till the day came she died at the age of 5 when a soccer post had fell on her and then instantly died. How could it happen to just a little girl?

I know you must be overwhelmed with emotions. I lost my nephew 2 years ago and I said the same thing, and someone said to me, close your eyes and think of Robbie. It was in that moment that I felt an overwhelming sense of peace flow through me. I opened my eyes and they said to me God had placed him in our lives to see the happiness and joy all around us. Robbie was loaned to us and the Almighty Father took him home. And someday when we are called home, hopefully someone will be able to close their eyes and smile. I know right now these words mean nothing. And when people tell you it gets easier it doesn't. You learn to live with that pain, it becomes part of who you are.

I have 13 nieces and nephews altogether and everytime I see them my youngest niece Poppy-Rose age 2 makes my day she will hide behind the window and then when I go in she can't stop laughing because she is soo happy to see me, but then when I am going home she cries so much. It makes me cry.

My very first niece was born on 1/1/11 and I was not able to be there. But the second I saw her picture, I felt what true love was. This little person will be depending on me (I am her Godmother also) and her parents to handle the world. I am looking forward to be there for her every second of her life! ;)

one time my niece came over my house for a month and when my brother came and picked her up she didn't want to leave and I cried for like 5 weeks straight because I had created a bond with her and I felt like a mom picking her up from daycare feeding her giving her baths and watching her sleep at time......

I'm am very close to my niece Allysa who I call "Baby Girl". This is truly how I feel as being a truck driver I don't get to see her as much as I'd like, but we stay in touch through texting and pictures.
