Angel Unaware

I love this poem. It makes me cry everytime I read it. RIP my baby girl.

Angels Unaware

Oh, the longing we both had,
To be a mummy and a dad.
We put our hopes and dreams in you,
He hoped for pink, I dreamed of blue.
but for you God had a different plan,
One we may never understand.
We were visited by an angel,
Though we didn't know it then.
You were the answer to our prayer,
Our Angel Unaware.

We hardly got to say hello,
Before we had to let you go.
God breathed your name and called you home.
So briefly here, so quickly gone.
But in the stillness of the night,
My empty arms still hold you tight.
We were visited by an angel,
Though we didn't know it then.
You were the answer to our prayer,
Our Angel Unaware.

In my mind I see you running.
Chasing bees and butterflies.
Soft hair gently blowing.
Healthy cheeks, laughing eyes.
In the quietness of the morning,
When the mist hangs in the air,
I hold you close within my heart -
My Angel Unaware.

How can I miss someone so much,
I barely had the chance to touch?
Yet, as you grew inside of me,
I learned how strong a love could be.
I knew you for a lifetime -
I'll love you for all of mine.
We were visited by an angel,
Though we didn't know it then.
You were the answer to our prayer,
Our Angel Unaware
