Happy Birthday my angel!

A year ago today I lost that twinkle in my eye
Pregnancy brings so many dreams….. babies aren’t supposed to die!
Sometimes I feel I could end all droughts with all the tears I cry
The ache that I still feel for you….. that I can’t deny.

The pain they say will ease
And I know that that is true
For sometimes mommy has good days
But oh God! How she misses you!

The proudest moments of my life were when you were growing inside me.
Being a mom was something I never thought I would be.
At first I was very scared and your daddy held me tight.
But once I knew that you were there the feeling was so right.

It was that first morning that the rituals began,
I’d drive to work and sing to you, on my tummy was my hand.
“Who wouldn’t want to be me” was our song.
I could never have imagined things would go so wrong.

You would have loved your daddy, he is such a special man.
Sometimes he feels lost when mommy cries,
But he holds my hand and does what he can.
Your mommy is so lucky to have him by her side
She couldn’t have a better man to help her through this bumpy ride.

My William Michael, my angel……
You will always live in mommy’s heart
I so wish things could have been different and that you were here with me today, but I know that cannot be and you are with me here in spirit and in my heart.
Mommy and Daddy will always love and miss you!



And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance

From Garth Brooks “The Dance”
