Daughter Death Poem

Poem Loss Of Daughter Who Left Behind Small Children

Our 29-year-old daughter was the middle of 3 and the mother of a 6-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son. She was taken from us May 21, 2012 from "Polypharmacy" (too many prescription drugs in her system).
The police came to our door, and I instinctively knew it was Amy and she was dead. I relive that moment every day. It gets harder every day she is gone. I lost my best friend. Her daughter looks just like her, and sometimes it's really hard not to cry in front of her (bitter-sweet). Rest in Peace, Amy Sue Love, Mom

No one will ever know the great pain we feel unless they too have lost a child, a child with a young child left behind. I feel cheated, cheated because I will never get to see my child raise...

My Sweet Amy


Published by Family Friend Poems May 2015 with permission of the Author.

The first time they laid you in my arms,
you were so small and precious,
the perfect gift from above,
and in an instant I fell in love.

From a girl to a woman, I would watch you grow,
it was the perfect plan, you know.

But I didn't realize just how it would happen so fast.
I just wish that I could go back and relive the past.

For the plan I once had
would no longer be.
When God called you home
I felt so all alone.

The day we had to part
left a big gaping hole in my heart.

Now every day I wake and cry,
for I never had the chance to say goodbye.
Then I think of your laugh and smile,
and know I will see it again in just a short while.

I often speak your name..
now all I have are memories
and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is my keepsake,
with which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping,
I have you in my heart.

I will miss you and think of you with love,
and know that you are with our loved ones above.

Hi, we lost our daughter at the age of 14. An oil tanker hit the car and six kids died - ages 13 to 16. Her birthday is coming up, and I wanted to find a nice poem for her. Every day is a challenge, but I live for her and that's what keeps me going. She was so full of life. To think of her smile makes me smile.

Hi, I’m Gugu, and I’m 21. My daughter was born last year (August 16, 2017). Normally when your child is born you feel joy hearing that first sound. I didn’t get to experience that, see her eyes, or hold her in my arms. She suffered from breathing problems from the moment she was born. Doctors told me that she wouldn’t live to see her 7th day on earth, and that was painful. But with God’s grace we shared our life together for 10 months in the hospital. She went through a lot at a very young age, and I also had to be strong for her when I had nobody to hold my hands and tell me it’s going to be okay. I had to watch her suffer every day going through life-threatening operations.

Charity was my 2nd daughter. She was just 2 weeks old. I had her on September 29, 2015 and she died on October 15, 2015. She became so restless the day before, we rushed her to the hospital when she started looking so pale. The doctors couldn't find her veins to commence treatment after she was diagnosed of sepsis/anaemia. She gave up the ghost the next morning. I had my 1st daughter after 4 years of childlessness. A year and 9 months later came Charity. I would never understand why God took her away from me after giving me so much hope. But I know His will for me is always the best and that one day, He will give me cause to smile again. It's been 9 months now, but the grief and the emotional trauma is ever fresh. I'll forever remember you Charity. I'll forever tell your story even to your siblings that I believe are yet to come. Rest on beautiful soul!

My daughter Cacey was my baby. At 19, could you believe that God called her home suddenly and left her baby that's nearly three..My heart is broken and can never be repaired. The love I have for Cacey will never go away because she's rooted to me and grew in me for days. I cry from the time I open my eyes until I go to bed..Sometimes the pain is so bad that I wish I was dead. I pray to Jesus to help me find my way..But without my daughter Cacey..I am lost everyday.

No one will ever know the great pain we feel unless they too have lost a child, a child with a young child left behind. I feel cheated, cheated because I will never get to see my child raise her children, to see her grow old, cheated because my husband Casey went to be with our child and they both left me behind. I still cry every day, not only for my daughter but also now for my husband, and can't help but be so mad that they both left me. And let me tell you, it does not get easier with time like they say. My life now sucks and it is so very hard to cope day to day. Sure, I have lots to be grateful for like my grandchildren and other children, but the bottom line is I'm so lonely, mad, upset that I lost my daughter and husband. It is very difficult, and I really have to work hard to put a smile on my face around my family.

it's me Amy's Mom.
December 19th 2015 I lost my Husband of 36 years he went to be with Amy. I can't help but to not only feel a deep sadness and a great emptiness that I'm loosing my family one by one but somehow feel cheated that Dad gets to be with Amy and they left me behind.
I still cry and miss Amy deeply. Her children are growing so fast Amy would be proud of them. I hope Dad is filling her ears full of stories.
Love you guys for ever

I feel for you. My heart aches for you. I'm lying here; it's 2:20am, and I'm writing a memorial. My Candace, 20 years old, was murdered by her BF on this day in 2004. She also had a 5-year-old daughter. Nineteen now, she looks just like her. It's bittersweet. Just read your story and wanted to say I'm sorry for your loss.
