Daughter Death Poem

The Loss Of A Daughter

I wrote this for my friend who lost her daughter within days after giving birth to a little boy. It's been heartbreaking to watch her hurt so much.

Our Song

You took a piece of me with you the day you left,
leaving me unable to catch my breath.

This isn't how it was supposed to be!
The world carries on like nothing has happened, but not me.

I'm stuck in this uncomfortable place of pain that no one can see.
I ask God to bring you back as I fall to my knees.

Tossed to and fro in a raging tide of emotion;
without you, I'm just so lost and broken.

I can still hear you calling my name,
then reality sets in and I'm reminded my life will never be the same.

Out of the corner of my eye I see you there, but when I turn to look, you fade away.
What I wouldn't give to just have one more day.

One more day to hold your hand
and to watch you live your life as you planned.

One more day to sing our song, "Close To You,"
and listen to you sing it to your son too.

I think about all the things I'll miss,
your smile, your laugh, your kiss.

I don't know how to make it through this,
when all I want is to call it quits.

As I look into your little boy's eyes, I know I have to carry on
so I can tell him about his mom.

I'll tell him how much you loved him and how you couldn't wait for him to be here.
Because of him, I know you will always be near.

My little girl has gone,
but to her little boy I will continue to sing our song.

It was on that early morning of Saturday 19th May 2018 when I had just part ways with her then someone came calling me to rush back home from work. On reaching the doorstep, I couldn't understand why there were so many people standing by the door, only to enter the house and find my 10-year-old daughter's body lying helplessly on the couch. I could feel her breath, but that was all in me, she was no more. She was gone just like that and without bidding me bye. I still can't believe it up to now because she was my all, my life and my everything. I loved her so much and very preciously, but God proved me wrong when he took away from me. I never knew that I could ever part ways with my only princess, but that's how it turned. Continue to rest with the angels, my precious baby girl Tracy.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I know grief but not the grief of losing a child. I can't imagine all you have gone through and continue to go through as I'm sure you think of your precious girl daily. Hugs and prayers.
