This is dedicated to my
daughter, Maria.

So here you are,
in LulabyLand
At spot B-44
Is where I stand

'Baby Girl' it said
at the top of the stone
Dirt stains your name
The grass overgrown

It's a beautiful day,
but it rains inside
I'm here to say, I'm OK
Now I Love, No longer to hide

I polished your head stone,
til the finish shined clear
I used water from the cherub,
and a few of my tears

The grass is now cut
The edges are done
A new week of flowers
Just today has begun

I cut my hand
Blood spilled from a vein
It fell to your grave
Our blood, one in the same

With tears in my eyes
I took a look around
You are in a field of children,
more babies in the ground

The loss and the sorrow
Who would you be today
Looking for words
"I miss you" I say

Why did you leave, why did you go?
Couldn't you hear your Mama call
How could this happen, How could I know?
As I sit here beside you....Tears Fall.

Both you and she are in our prayers.
