You were but three
when last I saw you
Your hand in mind
so trusting and fine
I gave you up
because I wanted
the best for you
but from that day on
I knew the moment
I let go of your hand
that my love for you
was what drove me on
21 years past
and then I tried to find you
hoped you would know of my love
that allowed me to cry
these tears all alone
3 weeks after
I got the call
The night before
you'd died all alone
some mad drunken driver
had crashed into your car
and now you and I
share our hearts
through a rainbow
I love you my darling
A year just gone
but 24 years in my heart
goodbye little girl
treasured daughter of mine

Why now?
I treasure each and every
rainbow
and we danced on one today!

This is sad. You found your daughter again.
Only to lose her again before you can see
her.I feel for you.

I don't even know what to say... I am speechless... I hurt for you, your words brought that out of me. Thank you for sharing your soul.

Such sweet sad words, but be glad for whatever days you had...I had a daughter who lived for three months, and I'm glad for each precious day I had. She will always be part of you and she will live on in your memories..God Bless You
