But it feels like an eternity since she has been gone.
She was always with me we did everything together.
I guess I took her for granted and thought she would live forever.
Dear God, The day she left she took a piece of my heart.
It was the first time since I gave her life that we would be apart.
All I could think is my life is through
Now I know each day away will bring me one day closer to her....
When my time is over and life on earth is done
I'll meet Ashleigh in Heaven and we’ll walk together with Patience as one.
Dear God, please take care of my little girl,
The one with big blue eyes, and soft brown curls.
She was special, as you should know,I really didn’t want to let her go.
She touched the hearts of everyone she knew
Letting her go was so hard to do
Her smile could brighten up the darkest room
I wish you didn’t have to take her so soon.
Dear God, I imagine her sitting and rocking Patience
Singing to her and telling her stories,
Tell her mommy loves her and wishes she could be here,
But it won’t be for many more years.
She loves to sing all kinds of songs,
Please tell her that she did no wrong.
Would you comfort her and hold her in your arms tight,
And tell her she is missed every day and night.
Dear God, Tell her she is loved so very dear
I’ll say it every day for her to hear.
Her short life on earth is now completed,
For lessons I’m sure you felt I needed.
Tell her I promise to see her again someday
When that will be, I really can’t say
I promise to make up for the time that’s past
To hold her and love her, in my arms at last.
I miss you Ashleigh......I can't believe it has been 11 months today since you left to be with Patience. Everyday I still cry a little for you. Sometimes I hear you say, "I love you, Mommy!" Then I smile for you are my heart. Love you too, Baby! Always and Forever!
