Daughter Death Poem

Poem About Loss Of Little Girl

On the evening of November 13, 2011, my fiancé and I where awoken by city police to inform us that our daughter had been taken to the hospital by ambulance (from her bio dad's) for a fall down the stairs. Once at the hospital after seeing the condition of my sweet 6 year old girl and asking a lot of questions, we were informed that she was suffering from blunt force trauma. On November 14, she passed on, quietly surrounded by loving family. I think of her every day and can't wait for her justice to be served.

Words From Mommy's Heart


Published by Family Friend Poems April 2014 with permission of the Author.

Thinking of you and your sweetest smile
I close my eyes for just a while,
As I lay and think of you
Your love of gum and how you'd chew,
And how you tried so very hard
To blow a bubble, but spit your gum across the yard,
I think of times spent at the park
And how you'd want to stay till dark,
The time you tried the balance beam
All by yourself, falling off with a laughing scream,
Or the many times I helped you along
The monkey bars though you were so strong,
The way you'd shout "weeee" going down the slide
Hands in the air like a stampede ride,
The way you ran around a tree
Yelling at everyone, "You can't catch me,"
I think of the nights you would try and stay up
And how you'd ask for your Tinkerbell cup,
The many stories that we'd read
And how you'd roll around your bed.

What I wouldn't give for one more night
To tuck you in all nice and tight
I'd give you kisses and sing our song
And tell you I love you and to be strong
I'd tell you not to worry and that we're all okay
And even though I wanted to, I couldn't make you stay
I know that you are happy now, and you're in no more pain
And this again I promise you, your loss was not in vain
So take my word here and now
I make this to you my solemn vow
Forever shall I love you and keep your memory
Until that day that once more, I can hold you close to me.

I recently lost my little girl this past Christmas, and it has been really hard for me and my 3 boys. Her loss was sudden. I wasn’t informed my baby had an infection in her body, so on the 25th at 7am she passed away just like that. What hurts me the most was I wasn’t there when she left. So every night I cry and wonder if she is really happy. Does she even think about us? It even hurts just to write about her. She just turned 3 on March 10.

I hope you're ok. I hope you're coping, and I hope you have a good supportive network. No words can make you feel better. I'm so sorry for your loss. My Daughter passed away in May this year, so I understand your pain. I'm a Muslim, so my faith tells me my little girl is playing in the gardens of Eden with Abraham and his wife. She asks God of my being and when I will join her. Just as I miss her, she too misses me. We believe when we are resurrected on the day of accountability, she will reunite with us. It really helps me get from one day to another. My sleeping angel, her tiny hands and feet, her golden skin and jet black hair, lay lifeless in front of me. Forever gone but never forgotten...

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know the pain of losing a child. It's a pain that's part of me now. And while I'll never be free of it, I'm stronger and still have so much love and hope in my heart. I wish this for you and your family. May your beautiful child lift you up always. I'll tuck my girl in tonight and say a special prayer for you and your little girl.
