Happy Birthday

Published: January 2012

Even though its been 25 years
I can't seem to hold back the tears,
Your birthday comes every year in July
but its also the day that you died
the day that was suppose to the best
was the day I found out I would have to lay you to rest
I can truly say I loved you before I met you
I never got a chance to see you, hold you, or even hear you coo
Right after I delivered you the doctors rushed in
I knew right then something was wrong,
I just never knew they would tell me your life would end
So I just wanted to take the time
and say you're on my mind everyday
especially on your birthday
even though I've never seen your face
Happy Birthday baby I love you and I know you're in a better place
I will see you someday
but I just wanted to take the time and say Happy Birthday

My daughter had hydrocephaly and died full term on the day she should have been born, July 12, 1973. I still cry for that angel child who I never got to hold, she will be eternally beautiful and is always missed. Someone told me she is my guardian angel, I hope so, her birthday always has unexpected meanings and never lets me forget, but I would never and could never forget anyway. I just wish I had told her how much I loved her and that I was so sorry she had to leave before she even had a start...

I had twin boys that was born 10 days apart. Xavier on 9-2-08 he lived 24 hrs and died and Xion on 9-13-08 he lived 24 hrs and died as well. They were 6 months when I had them. I had Xion memorial service at the hospital, because I was on bed rest and still pregnant with his brother Xavier. My world came to and end when Xion was born and died as well. So every year I release balloons with their names and messages on them.
