Holding You In My Heart

Dedicated to my sparkle, my unopened white rose. 
Conceived January 2004
Died March 25, 2004
 
I never saw your face
I never heard you cry
But you were with me
I carried you inside
I tried to protect you
I tried to keep you safe
But something stole you from me
And now you’re gone without a trace
I’ll always wonder what you could have been
What could you have done in this world
If tragedy hadn’t stepped in
Life without you will be hard
But for your sister I must go on
Even though I can’t watch you grow
I’ll think of you often
And wonder what you know
 
Do you know I love you?
Do you know I miss you?
Do you know I long to rock you to sleep?
Do you know I wanted you?
Do you know I dreamed of you?
Do you know how much I weep?
Do you know I think of you?
Do you know I care?
Do you know you’re with me,
even though you’re not here?
 
Baby sweet baby that didn’t live to see the world
Your mama loves you dearly
And though I’ll never hold you in my arms
I’ll always hold you in my heart.
