Sweet baby girl
There is a missing plate at the table, but
No disease will ever attack your body

Sweet baby girl
There is a hole in my heart, but
No pain of this world for you

Sweet baby girl
My arms aches to hold you, but
No skinned knees from learning to ride

Sweet baby girl
There is a laughter not heard, but
No man will ever break your heart

Sweet baby girl
There is a missing portrait on the wall, but
You’ll never wonder if you are pretty enough

Sometimes in my dreams you are there sweet baby girl, you are smiling and laughing with your sister and you brothers…your face is lit up with excitement and wonder, your auburn ringlets bouncing in the air as you run around giggling….then you turn to me and call me mommy…and my heart is glad…until I wake and realize….you’re gone!
