To my Dearest Daddy,

To my dearest daddy,
Please try not to cry 
I know your heart is hurting 
And you keep wondering why

But in my months of growing 
I heard your soothing voice 
I felt your hand on mummy's tummy
And I lived in your rejoice 

I was never meant to grow too big
Or even touch the Earth 
I was sent just for a little while
Not even to be Birthed 

But know this dearest Daddy
Time doesn't equal love
You did everything you could and more
And that was more than enough 

My job dearest Daddy
Was to be an angel in the sky
You created my heartbeat
And I gained wings to fly

I will always love you daddy
Just as you love me 
And until we meet again
In your heart is where I'll be
