Fathers day rolled around shortly after the loss of our baby. I told everyone that wanted to still celebrate the day with me that I didn’t want to celebrate it and asked for it to be treated as another day. My loving wife going against my wishes knew I needed something. She made this poem for me and put it in a picture frame. It was exactly what I needed. Now I wanted to share it with everyone.
To My Daddy
You may not have a picture to put in this frame,
but you know I was real, and you loved me just the same.
You anxiously awaited for me to arrive,
we did not know I would not survive.
Just know I watch you from above,
and you and mommy I will always love.
All the things you imagined we would do together,
one day we will in heaven forever.
I understand you are hurting now,
and you may be asking why and how.
But know I am safe way up here in the clouds,
I am with my Grandma and Grandpas,
and of me they are so proud.
So please always think of me,
until one day together we will be.
