Seven Weeks and Five Days

In my dreams, only I have seen.

Child of mine

I imagine you with the sweetest eyes

So divine

Gorgeous girl

Or handsome boy

I’ll never know...

But in my dreams

I see you and I know


You would have been perfect

Gracious child

I hold you, so tiny, when I close my eyes

I imagine your green eyes

Shining bright

Looking up at me,

so brilliantly


I failed you

And for that I am sorry

I never used to believe

But somehow I feel you with me

In my dreams, only I have seen

The most perfect child there has ever been

I’ve seen you, so little in your Daddy’s hands

And I have felt the warmth of your tiny body on my chest

You have left an imprint on my heart

Though I only carried you for a short time,

You will always be mine

I will carry you with me always

Gracious Child,

So divine
