(I wrote this for a family friend who sadly 10 years ago today, lost his son at 8 weeks 4 days
to Cot Death (S.I.D.S- Sudden Infant death Syndrome)
10 years ago I closed my eyes,
And sadly left your side,
I wish I could have stayed with you,
But it simply was my time.
I didn't suffer any pain,
I simply fell asleep,
I know you still miss me daddy,
But I wish you would not weep.
For heaven is a beautiful place,
It's filled with love and joy,
I play with other angel babies everyday,
We share hugs, love and toys.
I paint the rainbows when it has rained,
My favorite colour of them all is blue,
And when you see it in the sky,
Know it's my love being sent down to you.
So daddy even though it still hurts inside,
I hope you will remember me with a smile,
Us being apart is not forever,
It is only for a while.
One day we will meet again,
And share a long embrace,
Til then though daddy I'm always there,
To plant an angel kiss upon your face.
