My baby got her wings today,
But we never got to say goodbye,
Heartbreak erases child’s play,
Hopes and dreams become butterflies,
Arising from the tears we cry.
Mommy and Daddy miss you baby,
And struggle with the reason why,
Your wings God gave came too quickly,
When life was shattered senselessly.
Yet, you are more than just a memory,
Of the giggles and smiles you left behind,
Because the love we lost is now fulfilled,
In the arms of God – our only peace of mind.
