Child of mine
I imagine you with the sweetest eyes
Or handsome boy
I’ll never know...
But in my dreams
I see you and I know
You would have been perfect
I hold you, so tiny, when I close my eyes
I imagine your green eyes
Looking up at me,
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
