Charlotte

Two years ago today my heart broke when I watched my daughter come into the world. I touched her for just a second, wishing she could open her eyes.

I wrote this sometime between then and now, I don’t really remember when it was, it’s been such a long road.

For Charlotte

I want to hold your hand.

Sometimes I want to hold your hand; I’ve lost a thousand tears for you
I close my eyes and make a wish, but I know it won’t come true
To hold you in my arms one time wouldn’t ease my pain
You were born sleeping, and that’s how you remain

I often lie awake and think of you
My little angel fast asleep
I wish my wishes would come true
And help to steal my pain

I will spend my life remembering you
I love you, I always will
